Van Gogh & Britain
July 7 – September 24
This is the largest Van Gogh show in Britain for forty years and in Scotland for over fifty. It includes the early works of the highly emotional, nervous and difficult artist, who lacked self-confidence and only ever sold one picture himself. The mental health patient shot himself in 1890 “for the good of all”.
Van Gogh, classified as a post-impressionist, used colour and visible bold strokes as the main way for expression and provided a huge influence on 20th century art.
