Van Gogh Poets and Lovers in the National Gallery London 2024

In 2024, the National Gallery in London is staging its first-ever Van Gogh exhibition. For the Van Gogh: Poets and Lovers exhibition paintings and drawings from museums, galleries, and private collections from all over the world will be on display in London.

The exhibition focuses on the decisive two years that Vincent van Gogh spent in the south of France (1888-90). During this period in Arles and Saint-Rémy, Van Gogh revolutionized his style in a symphony of poetic color and texture. He was inspired by poets, writers, and artists. His desire to tell stories produced a landscape of poetic imagination and romantic love on an ambitious scale.

Some famous Van Gogh paintings from this period that will be on display in London in 2024 include among others ‘Starry Night over the Rhône’ (1888, Musée d’Orsay) and ‘The Yellow House’ (1888, Van Gogh Museum), as well as the National Gallery’s ‘Sunflowers’ (1888) and ‘Van Gogh’s Chair’ (1889).
