Take a Closer Look at the Life of Vincent van Gogh at This Art Exhibit

Celebrate one of the most recognizable artists in the world when Vincent van Gogh: His Life in Art comes to the Museum of Fine Arts Houston! On Saturday, March 23rd, join neighbors and friends for an immersive, highly curated display of van Gogh’s iconic works. Whether you’re an art history buff or amateur museum visitor, this exhibit is one you won’t want to miss!

The MFAH is the only venue for this major survey, which brings together more than 50 masterworks by one of the most iconic artists in the history of Western art. The exhibition showcases portraits, landscapes, and still lifes drawn primarily from the collections of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, the Netherlands.

Few artists left behind as complete a diary of life and work as Van Gogh, whose decade-long career as an artist began when he took up painting in 1881. Vincent van Gogh: His Life in Art follows Van Gogh (1853–1890) through four key stages of his career, from early sketches to final paintings. The exhibit highlights the artist’s early years in the Netherlands; his luminous period in Paris; his search for light and color in the South of France; and his exploration of nature as a source of enduring inspiration in Saint-Rémy and Auvers.

When you visit the exhibition, be sure to stop by the companion display nearby! Van Gogh Up Close is an immersive, family-friendly experience filled with art-making activities, photo-ops, and interactive fun. Upon entering the exhibition Vincent Van Gogh: His Life in Art, each guest receives one pass to Van Gogh Up Close, good for that day only. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
