Fierce friends: Artists & animals in the Industrial Era, 1750-1900
AMSTERDAM  •  Van Gogh Museum  •  Ongoing

Fierce friends shows visitors in amusing and interactive ways how people relate to animals.

The changing perspective on animals is illustrated with sculptures by the animal specialist Antoine Barye, and by large paintings of working and domestic animals by Rosa Bonheur and Edwin Landseer, as well as a crab and a bat by Van Gogh. Paintings, sculpture and remarkable scientific illustrations are accompanied by stuffed animals, skeletons and a huge dinosaur fossil. The innovative presentation of the objects encourages visitors to view and compare, to interact, explore and experience.
