Following the current exhibition The Potato Eaters: Mistake or Masterpiece?, which is on show until 13 February 2022, an exhibition focusing on Van Gogh’s olive grove paintings opens on 11 March.
Van Gogh and the Olive Groves explores the significance of olive trees to Vincent van Gogh and his ambitions when creating a paintings series of them. The exhibition is a collaboration with The Dallas Museum of Art (US).
Opening on 20 May and on display throughout the summer is the first retrospective of work by Etel Adnan (Beirut, 1925 – Paris, 2021) in the Netherlands.
Adnan, renowned for her vivid paintings, died on Sunday at the age of 96. The exhibition Colour as Language features Adnan’s colourful paintings, ‘leporellos’ and literary works, which are displayed in dialogue with several of Van Gogh’s works.
Various other presentations are also planned elsewhere in the museum, including Amour by Maurice Denis. The French artist’s romantic print series goes on display in February, just in time for Valentine’s Day. The museum will also host a range of activities; check the website for the latest programme.
