While deeply influenced by the Impressionist painters in Paris, Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) and Paul Gauguin (1848-1903) both established highly individual styles of their own. Taking as a focal point the two artists’ cohabitation in Arles, southern France, which came about at Van Gogh’s urging, this exhibition will trace the transitions in their friendship and the development of their art in the period leading up to Arles, as well as in the influences visible in their work thereafter.
