Vincent Van Gogh
This past weekend I had the unique and wonderful experience of having a private lecture and then tour of the Van Gogh art collection at the Denver Art Museum!! My host family was able to purchase tickets to the lecture led by a Calvin University professor, who gave an absolutely amazing lecture on the development of Van Gogh as an artist. There were also paintings by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Camille Pissarro as well as several other very famous artists. To be able to see this collection was amazing, and to be able to see it here in the United States was such a treat. The main collection is housed at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the capitol of the Netherlands.
If you are traveling to Denver or are looking for something to do over the holidays, I highly suggest going to see this exhibition. It is awesome. You may want to buy tickets in advance though, the exhibit was sold over 4,000 tickets in the first five days, and it was very full the day we went as well.
