Closer to Vincent
Until October 30, 2022, Vincent van Gogh House presents the exhibition Closer to Vincent – Everyday Objects in the Works of Vincent Van Gogh.
The exhibition is based on research by art historian Alexandra van Dongen into the objects Van Gogh painted in his paintings.
Her study provided many new insights into Vincent’s work. The gallery was designed by artists André Smits & Monika Dahlberg and contains various objects from the Van Gogh estate, from the collections of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and the Musée d’Orsay in Paris.
From girl to woman
Symbolism, tradition and secret language are intertwined with the lives of girls in Africa from an early age. For example, dolls play a major role in African culture. So it can be seen in many forms in the exhibition “Africa in Pictures, from Girl to Woman” at the Museum of Women. From simple play dolls for little girls to figurines as symbols or as lucky creatures.
But not only dolls tell a story. Fears, complaints, and desires are expressed in jewelry, fabrics, or pottery. For example, girls in South Africa know the secret language of designing a love letter with beaded threads and aprons in a colorful language. The woven fabrics are evidence of the girl’s readiness for marriage. Once you are married, you make your relationship problems clear to your partner and your environment through a pot lid with symbols.
The new exhibition “Africa in Pictures, from Girl to Woman” can be viewed until February 2023 and takes you into the expressive culture of Africa. A special visual language, exquisite craftsmanship and centuries of tradition.
Harmonious landscapes, calm characters and simple spirits, this is what painter and art collector Paul Arntzius (1883-1965) is drawn to. In 1963 he donated his collection to the Gouda Museum, where part of this “silent splendor” can be seen from July 30.
Avatar in Flanders
A dreamy river landscape to hide in, a powerful farmer’s head looking you straight in the eye and a weak, outstretched figure of marble. The symbolism of Flanders cannot be easily captured in a single photo and yet all works have one thing in common.
They represent a yearning for deepening. Return to nature, origin and inner peace. A topic that many now recognize. This exhibition tells the story of a group of artists who opposed industrialization around 1900 and settled in the village of Saint Martins Latheme, south of Ghent. Beautiful representations of landscapes and human figures are created in an environment of peace, space and spirituality.
On display at the Het Noordbrabants Museum-Hertogenbosch until October 9, 2022.
