For the first time in several years, all sixteen of the Vincent van Gogh paintings owned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art —the largest collection of his work on this side of the Atlantic—are in-house and on view in the galleries for nineteenth-century European paintings. Visitors can enjoy highlights from the artist’s prolific years in France, including portraits, still lifes, and landscapes.

These masterpieces are often committed to exhibitions around the world, making this a not-to-be-missed occasion.
