New York: A large and significant part of Van Gogh’s production that remains comparatively unknown will be featured in this first major American retrospective of the artist’s drawings. The exhibition will include a selection of over 100 works ingeniously composed in pen and ink, graphite, chalk, charcoal, and watercolor (along with a group of related paintings). These graphic images, lent by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and from 50 other public and private collections, brilliantly illustrate Vincent’s own dictum: “Drawing is the root of everything.”
Vincent Van Gogh: The Drawings will run through December 31st.
