The show

The Van Gogh exhibition at Palazzo Bonaparte in Rome will be open from 8 October 2022. It is the largest and most awaited exhibition of the year dedicated to the Dutch genius, just on the eve of the 170th anniversary of the artist's birth . Through the most famous works of Van Gogh - including his famous Self-Portrait (1887) - the story of the most famous artist in the world will be told.

Van Gogh was born in Holland on March 30, 1853, he was an artist with extreme sensitivity and a tormented life. Famous are his attacks of madness, the long hospitalizations in the psychiatric hospital of Saint Paul in Provence, the episode of the ear cut off, as well as the epilogue of his life, which ends on July 29, 1890 , at only thirty-seven years old, with a suicide: a gunshot to the chest in the fields of Auvers .

Despite a life steeped in tragedy, Van Gogh paints a shocking series of Masterpieces , accompanying them with sublime writings (the famous "Letters" to his brother Theo Van Gogh), inventing a unique style that made him the most famous painter in the history of art. . The Van Gogh exhibition at Palazzo Bonaparte , through 50 works from the prestigious Kröller Müller Museum in Otterlo - which houses one of the greatest collections of Van Gogh 's works - and many biographical testimonies, reconstructs his human and artistic story, to celebrate his universal greatness.

Van Gogh at Palazzo Bonaparte offers an exhibition itinerary with a chronological thread and which refers to the periods and places where the painter lived: from the Dutch one, to his stay in Paris, to that in Arles, up to St. Remy and Auvers-Sur- Oise , where he put an end to his tormented life.

From the passionate relationship with the dark landscapes of youth to the sacred study of land work, figures emerge who act in a severe everyday life such as the sower, the potato pickers, the weavers, the woodcutters, the women intent on domestic tasks or tired of transporting sacks of coal or to dig the ground; attitudes of awkward sweetness, expressiveness of faces, fatigue understood as an inescapable destiny.

All of these are an expression of the greatness and intense relationship with the truth of Van Gogh 's world.
