From Shades of Grey to Shades of Light
Vincent van Gogh Self-portrait
Vincent van Gogh is one of the most famous artists in the world, yet he had a relatively short career spanning only ten years. Some of his most important works in that period comes from the two years he spent in Paris between 1886-1888. During this time, there was a shift in Van Gogh's style; he moved away from sombre greys and started painting in bright colours. It is these paintings which have become most well known today, and these paintings which Eykyn Maclean have decided to showcase at their gallery on St. George Street.
Van Gogh in Paris displays a number of paintings from privately owned collections, which have rarely been seen by the public. Alongside Van Gogh, you will also be able to see the work of his peers, including Monet, Pissarro, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Gauguin.
Entrance to the gallery is free, but you do need to book in advance.
