Milan takes on the colours of…Vincent Van Gogh. From 18 October until 8 March 2015, within the scope of the exhibition “Van Gogh – L’uomo e la terra”, at Palazzo Reale in Milan, you can admire some of the Dutch master’s most famous works, such as “Self Portrait”, dated 1887, “Head of a fisherman” dated 1883, “Weedburner sitting on a wheelbarrow with his wife”, also from 1883.
The show focuses on the strong link between man and the land, nature and its fruits. A theme chosen in line with that of Expo 2015 – Feeding the world, preserving the planet – which starts from 1 May of next year.
The path is also an opportunity to investigate the evolution of the Dutch artist’s style, made up of string brushstrokes and increasingly vivid colours, starting with the sketches and preparatory drafts and continuing through to the most famous works of the Dutch and French period.
The layout of the exhibition, curated by Kathleen Adler, was conceived by starchitect Kengo Kuma.
