"Vincent van Gogh: His Life in Art" is a major survey that brings together more than 50 masterworks by one of the most iconic artists in the history of Western art. The exhibition follows Van Gogh (1853-1890) through four key stages of his career, from early sketches to final paintings, as he moved throughout Europe.

Few artists left behind as complete a diary of life and work as Van Gogh, whose decade-long career as an artist began when he took up painting in 1881. "Vincent van Gogh: His Life in Art" highlights the artist’s early years in the Netherlands; his luminous period in Paris; his search for light and color in the South of France; and his exploration of nature as a source of enduring inspiration in Saint-Rémy and Auvers.

The exhibition showcases portraits, landscapes, and still lifes drawn primarily from the collections of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, the Netherlands.
