Description

Van Gogh and the Olive Groves is the very first exhibition dedicated to Vincent van Gogh’s important olive grove series created between June and December 1889 during his stay at the asylum of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. Co-organized by the Dallas Museum of Art and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, this groundbreaking exhibition presents new insights into a beloved artist through works drawn from public and private collections. Watch a video preview of the exhibit here.

Reunited for the first time, the paintings reveal the late artist’s passionate investigation of the expressive powers of color and line, and his choice of the olive groves as an evocative subject. The exhibit highlights exciting new discoveries about the artist’s techniques, materials, and palette that emerged from a collaborative conservation and scientific research project covering all fifteen paintings in the series.

Note that for this exhibit, all visitors must first reserve a free general admission ticket for the DMA on their selected date. Guests will then be able to add on a matching exhibition ticket. An exhibition ticket alone will not permit entry to the DMA.
