Barbara Stok draws Vincent van Gogh
19 October 2012 - 3 May 2013
On 19 October Barbara Stok’s comic book Vincent was published. It takes the reader on a journey to the brief and intense period of time that the painter spent in the south of France.
An intimate travelling presentation, due to visit various public libraries in the Netherlands, reveals the inspiration which Barbara Stok derived from Van Gogh. Glimpses into the studios of both Stok and Van Gogh allow visitors to figuratively look over the shoulders of the two artists.
A central element in the presentation is Van Gogh’s painting The sower and the cartoon drawings devoted to this work by Stok. Stok’s comic book will be published in October.
