van Gogh

a reflection . . . .

A recent visit to the Denver Art Museum to see “Becoming van Gogh,” a recently installed exhibit, was fascinating.  The collection of eighty-nine works by van Gogh and his contemporaries follows the evolution of his desire to become an artist.  Early sketches seemed crude and amateurish, but his  passion to master the formal elements of technique and composition, as well as color, led to his development as one of history’s most iconic painters.  Many of the works in the exhibition have rarely been seen in America, but the beautiful book developed for this exhibition will serve as a keepsake and reminder of the opportunity we had to see this fabulous collection.
