This spectacular exhibition offered an extensive and colourful exploration of the common ground between the work of Vincent van Gogh and David Hockney. The exhibition 'Hockney - Van Gogh: The Joy of Nature' was on view from 1 March to 26 May 2019.
1 March - 26 May 2019
The world-famous art of David Hockney (1937) is colourful and colossal. Hockney is inspired by nature, he makes use of bright colours and experiments with perspective. Van Gogh also dealt with this. The resemblances between the two artists are no coincidence. Vincent van Gogh was a great source of inspiration for David Hockney.

The Joy of Nature
In the exhibition Van Gogh's masterpieces will be shown alongside works by Hockney. Hockney's imposing Yorkshire-landscapes are a central part of the exhibition, with The Arrival of Spring in Woldgate (2011) as highlight.
Hans den Hartog Jager explores both artists’ fascination with nature, their use of bright colours and their experimentation with perspective. He also interviews David Hockney to discuss how Van Gogh’s work inspires him. Available in Dutch and English, € 29.95 (museum edition).
