My dear followers, the great expectation is about to finish… on November 12 arrives in Genoa the wonderful art exhibition “Van Gogh e il Viaggio di Gauguin”, where travel is felt as geographical exploration, such as physical and interior movement.
Genoa will house “Van Gogh e il Viaggio di Gauguin - Pittura degli spazi percorsi da Turner a Gauguin a Rothko”, fabulous art exhibition designed by the general manager of Linea d’Ombra, Marco Goldin, and composed of 80 European and American masterpieces of the XIX and XX century from museums from all over the world. The exhibition is made possible through the cooperation of several greatest institutions: the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and the Kröller-MüllerMuseum in Otterlo.
The protagonist of the exhibition is the journey, which is divided in few aspects, from the Gauguin’s exotic and geographic one in Tahiti, to the Van Gogh’s more metaphysical and inner one, across the forms, the spaces and the colors of Monet, Kandinsky, Hopper, Friedrich and Turner’s works.
The famous painting four meters long, painted in Tahiti in 1897 by Gauguin, is the exhibition’s emblem: “Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?”, given only for the second time in Europe. An art exhibition to convey experiences, emotions, new knowledge, related to the idea that a journey is the figurative or physical place of a lifetime.
And then also Bierstadt, Hopper, Rothko, Turner, Morandi and many other protagonists of the art scene of the last two centuries. The exhibition includes furthermore some activities, such as workshops for schools and a recital devoted to the Van Gogh’s letters.
