Van Gogh works on paper from L.A. collections are together for just a few weeks in the Armand Hammer Collection gallery.
For just a few weeks, they bring together several works on paper by Vincent van Gogh from the Getty, Norton Simon Museum, and LACMA, in addition to works from the Armand Hammer Collection. Due to their delicacy, these works are not often on view.

The works are displayed in conjunction with a series of lectures offered on three Sundays in October and November by the art historian, curator, museum director, and Hammer Board of Directors member John Walsh.
