On view at the National Gallery in London from 25 January until 27 April 2014.
For the first time in 65 years, the painting Sunflowers from the Van Gogh Museum’s collection will be on display at London's National Gallery together with the Sunflowers from their collection.
For visitors to the National Gallery, this is a unique opportunity to see two versions of the iconic Sunflowers together and to compare these popular masterpieces. These are two of the five versions of Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers in different corners of the world. The other three are in Tokyo, Munich and Philadelphia.
The National Gallery exhibition presents new insights into Van Gogh’s working method, the result of recent scientific research in both museums. Much more is now known about how Van Gogh painted the Sunflowers and the materials he used.
Sunflowers back in summer
The Sunflowers will be on loan to the National Gallery in London from 25 January to 27 April 2014. The painting will back on display at the Van Gogh Museum following a reorganisation of the permanent collection in the summer 2014.
