Gauguin and Van Gogh: A Dialogue of Bouquets

This event has already passed Location: Horchow Auditorium

When Gauguin came to Arles to join van Gogh as the second painter in "The Studio of the South" in 1888, he was shown to his bedroom decorated by two recently painted floral still-lifes of sunflowers. Gauguin also painted a portrait of van Gogh painting the sunflowers and, many years later, Gauguin planted a flower garden in Tahiti and painted four major floral still-life paintings that recall his time with van Gogh. Join Dr. Richard R. Brettell, The Margaret McDermott Chair of Art & Aesthetics at the University of Texas at Dallas and author of the forthcoming catalogue raisonné of Gauguin's paintings, for a consideration of this dialogue of floral still-life paintings in detail with reference from both artist's writings.

Late Night lectures are FREE.
