Events in Art and Archaeology

Van Gogh & Japan
AMSTERDAM  •  Van Gogh Museum  •  23 March - 24 June 2018
 
Amsterdam's Van Gogh Museum has opened 'Van Gogh & Japan', a major international exhibition about the influence of Japanese art on the work of Vincent van Gogh. With some sixty paintings and drawings by Van Gogh and a large selection of Japanese prints, the exhibition explores the extent of Van Gogh’s admiration for this form of art and the fundamental impact it had on his work. Exceptional loans from museums and private collections all over the world are coming to Amsterdam, among them Self-Portrait with Bandaged Ear (1889, The Courtauld Gallery, London), a painting that has not left the UK since 1955 and has not been shown in the Netherlands since 1930. Other highlights include Van Gogh’s Self-Portrait (1888, Harvard Art Museums/ Fogg Museum, Cambridge, MA), Woman Rocking the Cradle (Augustine Roulin) (1889, The Art Institute of Chicago),
Undergrowth with Two Figures (1890, Cincinnati Art Museum), La Crau with Peach Trees in Blossom (1889, The Courtauld Gallery, London) and The Arlésienne (Marie Ginoux) (1888, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York). It is the first time that an exhibition of this scope and scale has been devoted to this subject.

Tristan + Isolde

Choreographer David Dawson breathes new life into the timeless love story of Tristan and Isolde, with his abstract narrative and elegant dance style. It is a story about the passionate and doomed love between two young people who come from historical and socially opposed camps and who die a tragic death for love. Dawson asked the Polish composer Szymon Brzóska to write a new composition for this old myth.
