First time on display
The new charcoal drawings and photographs have never before been exhibited and are only temporarily on display at the Van Gogh Museum. Moreover, photography is a new medium for Van Eeden; he previously exclusively focused on drawing.
In addition to Van Eeden’s drawings and photographs, the exhibition Gasworks: Van Eeden & Van Gogh also features archival material from March 1882 compiled by himself – ranging from newspaper articles to documents about the factory. And naturally you can also admire Van Gogh’s original drawing and several of his letters from the period, which are rarely exhibited due to their fragility.
The exhibition will subsequently be on display at The Mesdag Collection in The Hague.
