Sat, Mar 5 - Sun, Sep 4  2022

The Dayton Art Institute in Ohio present “Van Gogh & European Landscapes” from March 5 – September 4, 2022.

In this DAI-exclusive exhibition, a remarkable pair of Van Gogh paintings, on loan to the museum from Switzerland, will be at the center of a look at European landscape painting. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view two works that are rarely seen outside Europe!

The paintings of Vincent van Gogh are beloved and instantly recognized the world over for their brilliant color and bold brushwork. Despite his untimely death at the age of thirty-seven, Van Gogh worked intensely until the very end. The pair of landscape paintings in this exhibition were made in Auvers-sur-Oise, France, in July 1890, the final month of Van Gogh’s life. They are vibrant images that feature his signature style of thick dashes of color and quickly applied swirls made with a loaded brush.

This intimate Focus Exhibition also includes works by Daubigny, Corot, Turner, Constable and others.
