This will be the first major project devoted to the Dutch artist by a Canadian institution for over two decades. Presented in Canadian exclusivity in Ottawa, Van Gogh: Up Close will break new ground in exploring the artist’s representation of nature in particular his innovative use of the close-up view. The artist depicts nature in very particular ways: he experiments with depth of field and focus, zooms in on a verdant tuft of grass or a single iris and or provides shifting perspectives of a farmer’s field or the corner of a garden. This exhibition will feature approximately 50 paintings including works that have rarely been shown publicly, as well as a selection of Japanese prints. Organized by the National Gallery of Canada and the Philadelphia Museum of Art.Presented by Sun Life Financial.
