Fishing in Spring, the Pont de Clichy (Asnières) (1887). Collection of the Art Institute of Chicago.
“Van Gogh and the Avant-Garde: The Modern Landscape,” an exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago, will examine Vincent van Gogh’s time in the outskirts of Paris from 1882 to 1890. During this period, the suburbs of Paris were home to a number of Post-Impressionist artists, including Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, Emile Bernard, and Charles Angrand. The exhibition will focus on the influence of the increasingly industrialized suburbs on the development of the exaggerated colors and dramatic brushstrokes that characterized the movement.
The exhibition will be on display from May 14 to September 4, 2023.
