On Friday the National Gallery of Victoria’s major Winter 2017 exhibition opened its doors.
Van Gogh remains as one of art history’s most recognisable figures – he had a brief yet prolific art career that lasted just over a decade, and his work lead to an artistic legacy that continues to inspire artists and captivate the public to this day.
Van Gogh and the Seasons is an international exclusive for Melbourne, and the largest collection of Van Gogh artworks ever to be shown in Australia.
