In the fall of 1888, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin lived together in the village of Arles in the south of France. This conversation will explore the importance of the 63 days these two artists spent together.

This 63 day period in the 'yellow house' proved to be decisive in the development of both artists, and also, radically, in the development of modern art. Based on the landmark exhibition of 2002 this seminar discusses one of the most important and tumultuous episodes in the history of art.

We will reconstruct these 63 days, discussing all the famous (and not so famous) episodes and works of this period in the career of these two hot-headed artists. From 'the Sunflowers' to the 'incident with the ear', Sabry will add the latest research and high definition images to give participants a thorough immersion in this notorious period.

Led by an expert on art history, Sabry Amroussi will lead participants through this short yet formative time for both artists and the development of modern art. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding of the works of art of van Gogh and Gauguin and their 63 days in the south of France.

Sabry Amroussi is an art historian and writer living and working in Amsterdam. He specializes in the art of the Dutch Golden Age, mainly in the works of Rembrandt and his school, and also has a keen interest in the Jewish history of Amsterdam. He lectures and teaches on both subjects, and gives art historical tours all across Europe. As a true omnivore when it comes to art, culture, and even cuisine, he has worked with and for major museums and collectors, such as the LACMA, Rijksmuseum, van Gogh Museum and the P de Boer collection on Amsterdam. As a guide for Context, he is eager to share this knowledge in real life, always with a big scoop of humor, ofter intermingling art with social life, cuisine, and history.

This conversation is suitable for all ages

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.

Another excellent seminar from Sabry!

This was a very brief but tumultuous time in art history. We really could have spent a lot longer discussing all of the back story and the fallout. Sabry did an expert job at laying out the personalities and events leading up to the time Van Gogh and Gaugin spent together and how it all ended sadly. I'm glad I took this with Sabry as I didn't know much about this relationship and trusted Sabry would handle it well. He did!

This talk should be a 10!

This very compelling talk covered the relationship between Van Gogh and the painter he idolized, Gaugin, in a critical period for the art of both. The depth of Sabry's insights, and his capacity to give evidence for them, were superb. One of the best this year!

Loving this lecture!

Terrific! Van Gogh and Gauguin: The 63 Days That Changed Art with Sabry Amroussi. I saw paintings I have never seen before and of course I now need to see them in person, when we can travel again! I would love for Sabry to discuss Van Gogh last 70 days in Auvers-sur-Oise next!

Such an interesting approach to the Van Gogh and Gauguin relationship.
We thought we knew but this so clarifies and explains.
Sabry Amroussi is wonderful. I will look for another Context from him.
