In A Brilliant Light: Van Gogh in Arles

from 24.95

This program examines the work of Dutch-born artist Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) during the most productive period of his brief artistic life - the fifteen months between February 1888 and May 1889 that he spent in the city of Arles, in the southeastern region of France known as Provence.

Inspired by the light and colors of Arles, Van Gogh produced some 200 paintings and 100 drawings, including some of his most famous works, such as the portraits of the Roulin family, "The Night Cafe," "Van Gogh's Bedroom," "The Harvest," "Boats on the Beach," and "The Sunflowers."
