Ekaterina Borisova asks where and when the first Van Gogh exhibition was held. Discover the answer.
When the Théâtre Libre opened in Paris on 30 March 1887, Van Gogh presented at least one of his paintings: Garden with Courting Couples was on display in the rehearsal room. Signac and Seurat both also had work on display.
Six years after his death, in 1896, the first solo exhibition of Van Gogh’s work was held in Ambroise Vollard’s gallery in Paris. Nowadays, it’s almost impossible to count how many exhibitions have featured Van Gogh’s work.
