Milan takes on the colours ofâ€¦Vincent Van Gogh. From 18 October until 8 March 2015, within the scope of the exhibition â€śVan Gogh â€“ Lâ€™uomo e la terraâ€ť, at Palazzo Reale in Milan, you can admire some of the Dutch masterâ€™s most famous works, such as â€śSelf Portraitâ€ť, dated 1887, â€śHead of a fishermanâ€ť dated 1883, â€śWeedburner sitting on a wheelbarrow with his wifeâ€ť, 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 â€“ 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 artistâ€™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.
