“Munch : Van Gogh” Exhibition Opens at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam
The Munch : Van Gogh exhibition opens at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, with a multimedia tour on 1,000 MPti™ devices by Imagineear.
The exhibition focuses on the parallels between the two iconic artists, Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) and the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch (1863-1944), who are often mentioned together. Their visions on life and art are closely related, despite the fact that they never met. Their work is colourful, intense, expressive and radical; and their lives are remarkably similar in many ways.
For the first time, the exhibition studies in detail the similarities between both artists. Among more than one hundred artworks, there are several iconic masterpieces and works on special loan which are rarely lent out, such as The scream and Madonna by Edvard Munch and Starry night over the Rhone and Patience Escalier (‘The farmer’) by Vincent van Gogh.
Munch : Van Gogh offers the unique opportunity to admire an important part of the work of both artists in one location.
Take a different look at the exhibition highlights. You not only see all the paintings, you also know what the artists wanted to say in them. You can book the multimedia guide with your online ticket for only € 5.
A colourful catalogue accompanies the exhibition. The emotionally charged works by Munch and Van Gogh, their innovative style and turbulent lives are extensively discussed based on over 200 works and photos.
Every month, you can attend a Sunday lecture in which we highlight a special aspect of the exhibition. On 11 October, 8 November, 13 December and 17 January.
Like Munch and Van Gogh, get to work with paint and play with lines and colour. Every last weekend of the month from September to November, there are free walk-in workshops.
Why did Munch paint The Scream? And what is the meaning of Van Gogh’s The Bedroom? A guided tour helps you get more from the Munch : Van Gogh exhibition. Book your private tour with max. 15 people.
