"Colours of the Night" in Amsterdam
The exhibition "Van Gogh and the Colours of the Night" (Van Gogh en de kleuren van de nacht) opened at the Van Gogh Museum 13 February and will run through 7 June 2009. Most of the same pieces on view in the New York showing are included in the Amsterdam venue, with a few additions/subtractions. Particularly noteworthy is the return of "Starry Night" to Amsterdam, the painting's first visit to the Van Gogh Museum since 1990.
Timed tickets are being sold for the exhibition, available at the VGM website (see link at left). Can't get to Amsterdam? The VGM has plenty of exhibition-related goodies in its Online Shop, including the pictured poster.
