DESCRIPTION

Join us for an evening looking at one of the world’s most recognizable artists. Three talks explore Van Gogh’s influences, work and impact. The evening begins with an overview of art from Manet to Van Gogh, followed by Chief Curator Carol Togneri’s introduction to Van Gogh’s works in the Norton Simon Museum collections and the loan from the National Gallery of Art. The evening ends with a discussion that examines Van Gogh’s influence on expressionism and the art of the 20th century. Offered concurrently with the gallery talks are art-making activities for artists of all ages to create original works.
