In conjunction with the exhibition Van Gogh Repetitions (Oct 12, 2013--Jan 26, 2014), art historian and van Gogh expert Cornelia Homburg explains the myth of van Gogh as "mad genius."
In the first Vincent van Gogh (1853--1890) exhibition in DC in 15 years, the Phillips brings together 35 of his celebrated portraits and landscapes from some of the world's most renowned collections. Van Gogh Repetitions features results of more than half a decade of research into the artist's process, revealing a fascinating picture of his personal life and art. While recognized for the intensity and speed with which he painted, van Gogh also worked with careful deliberation, creating multiple versions of some of his most famous subjects.
