Virtual Event: Van Gogh and the Olive Groves: Impressions of Provence

Saturday, January 29, 10:00 a.m. CST

Alongside the olive groves, Van Gogh sought to create two additional series of paintings dedicated to cypress trees and the Alpilles Mountains. Together, he intended these three distinct series to form a larger ensemble that he called “Impressions of Provence.” In this public symposium, scholars respond to the three motifs Van Gogh put at the center of his production in Saint-Rémy, exploring their meaning and the greater context the artist envisioned for them within his oeuvre.
