In this conversation, we will explore the collection of the uniquely dedicated van Gogh museum in Amsterdam. We will follow van Gogh's humble beginnings in Holland and his arrival in Paris. This is where van Gogh meets the Impressionists such as Monet, Manet, and Toulouse-Lautrec, and his paintings transform radically. After Paris, we will follow van Gogh's journey to southern France - his most productive period but also the most turbulent one. It is here that van Gogh, keen on exploration and experimentation, discovered his vision about art.

Yet while van Gogh produced great masterpieces the world had yet to see, he was also committed to a mental asylum. What was it that propelled van Gogh forward through this hardship? Follow this Context Conversation to find out more about van Gogh's drive, and gain an insider's view into the renowned collection of van Gogh's museum in Amsterdam.

Led by art critic and expert Eve Kalyva, this interactive discussion will awaken our interest in the world of this celebrated Dutch artist. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with a better understanding of van Gogh and his artworks.

This conversation is the first in a three-part series. Each seminar can be joined independently and in any order.
