Van Gogh and the Olive Groves is the very first exhibition dedicated to Vincent van Gogh’s important olive grove series of 15 paintings created between June and December 1889 during his stay at the asylum of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence.
Reunited for the first time, the paintings reveal Van Gogh’s passionate investigation of the expressive powers of color and line, and his choice of the olive groves as an evocative subject.
Van Gogh and the Olive Groves highlights exciting new discoveries about the artist’s techniques, materials, and palette that emerged from a collaborative conservation and scientific research project covering all fifteen paintings in the series.
Co-organized by the Dallas Museum of Art and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, this groundbreaking exhibition presents new insights into a beloved artist through works drawn from public and private collections.
