Over forty Van Gogh paintings from all over the world will be on display.
“Some great loans from the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam and a number of other museums. We’re very fortunate as well to get nine works on loan to us from private collections,” Curator Jenny Thompson says.
Co-curator Joseph Rishel says you’ll see works you may have never seen before and some that are more familiar.
“One of the most famous pictures he ever painted. A close-up, as it were, of a spare branch of almond blooms which bloomed very, very early in the winter, which he took to his new little nephew,” Rishel describes.
Van Gogh Up Close runs until May 6th. For more information, go to www.philamuseum.org.
