We've said it before and we'll say it again — it's worth the hour plus drive to Columbia to see all the great stuff our capital's art museum has to offer. And, after a recent renovation, the Columbia Museum is more appealing than ever.
Opening this October, the museum presents an exciting, original exhibition, Van Gogh and His Inspirations
. Guests can check out 12 paintings and drawings from Van Gogh including a painting of poppy fields on loan from the National Gallery of Art, a painting of a peasant woman weaving from the Boston Museum of Fine Art, and the world-famous self-portrait from the Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art.
These works will be presented side-by-side with their inspirations: a collection of over 30 works by artists who influenced Van Gogh's aesthetic thinking. These works were collected over a decade by Steven Naifeh and Greg Smith as they researched their NYT
bestseller, Van Gogh: The Life.
Van Gogh and His Inspirations
will be on display from Oct. 4-Jan. 12, 2020. Learn more online at columbiamuseum.org
