Vincent van Gogh Exhibition at Musée d'Orsay

0 Comments

Musée d'Orsay was the host of a wonderful exhibition. Under the light classy ambiance, Vincent Van Gogh spirit enlighted the salon with fantastic works of art. The expo contains more than 40 paintings, letters from Van Gogh.

The entire idea had its source of inspiration from Antonin Artaud's book written in 1947 ”Van Gogh, the Man Suicided by Society". For the exhibition, Vincent Van Gogh was enough to show how eternity looks like with this "single-minded concern for every stroke silently and poignantly applied. The common color of things, but oh so right, so lovingly right, that no precious stones can equal in its rarity." 

At the exhibition, high class personalities were present. Among them, the Countess Jacqueline de Ribes  who kept a short speech about helping the institution maintain its spirit, a spirit kept alive through the years by her husband Édouard who raised funds for it for more than three decades. 

One of the great pieces donated by the countess to the museum was "In the Greenhouse" by Albert Bartholomé, with the dress in white with polka dots and violet stripes, the centerpiece from last year exhibition, "Impressionism and Fashion".    

The exhibition is open till July 6th.
