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 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!
As always, Sabry was excellent and made me want to do more research . I hope that someday we will meet in Amsterdam and visit the Van Gogh Museum together!
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.
