London Exhibitions Eykyn Maclean. Van Gogh in Paris. 26 September – 29 November 2013

Vincent Van Gogh, A Pair of Shoes, One shoe upside down, 1887, oil on canvas, Private Collection.

Eykyn Maclean will present Van Gogh in Paris in September 2013; a landmark exhibition exploring the years from 1886 to 1888 when Van Gogh was living and working in Paris. This period was paramount to the artist’s development and proved to be a turning point in his career. Van Gogh’s work evolved considerably as he began to move away from the dark palette of his early Dutch period to the vivid and lively colour characteristic of his later work. Nicholas Maclean explains, “This exhibition explores the period of Van Gogh’s work at its most pivotal moment. We wanted to place the evolution of his artistic development in context by examining not only Van Gogh’s work from that time, but also by investigating the work of his contemporaries and key influences in Paris.”
A selection of core works by Van Gogh champion the exhibition, including A Pair of Shoes, 1886/87 and Rue Confins, A Man carrying a Spade, 1887. They will be shown among a carefully selected collection of works by the artists he most admired while in Paris, thus setting up the framework for the exhibition. These include works by Impressionists such as Monet and Pissarro, known to Van Gogh as the artists of ‘le Grand Boulevard’ and paintings by the younger avant-garde of ‘le Petit Boulevard’ like Gauguin, Bernard, Toulouse-Lautrec, Seurat, and Signac. The pioneering experiments of these artists allowed Van Gogh to develop the confidence to embrace the brilliant palette for which he is now most renowned.
A fully-illustrated catalogue accompanies this exhibition, featuring essays by noted scholar and curator Ann Dumas (whose previous exhibitions include The Real Van Gogh: The Artist and his Letters at the Royal Academy of Arts, London 2010, and Cezanne to Picasso: Ambroise Vollard: Patron of the Avant-Garde at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York and the Musée d’Orsay, Paris in 2006) and Marina Ferretti Bocquillon, Director of the Musée des impressionnismes at Giverny and a distinguished scholar of Neo-Impressionism who will analyse the influence of Pointillism on Van Gogh.
This exhibition will be followed by Surrealism & the rue Blomet at Eykyn Maclean in New York, exploring another period of incendiary creative development amongst the next generation of artists in Paris.
