Palazzo Ducale, Appartamento del Doge November 12th, 2011 - May 1st, 2012. This stunning exhibition actually consists of 80 masterpieces of 19th- and 20th-century European and American painting from museums worldwide, inspired by Vincent van Gogh's preeminent role in the art of the two centuries in question. The extraordinary adventure of the "journey" – the ultimate, innermost meaning of the exhibition – gradually developed around his ever-burning flame
Genoa is thus the stage for an incredible, superb exhibition of Van Gogh masterpieces. Not to mention the momentous loan of Gauguin’s "Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?" and even more masterpieces by great artists from Hopper to Kandinsky.
This journey is not only from one place to another, it is also a digging deep into self on an equally long and at times more challenging adventure.
Van Gogh fuses both journeys in his painting. Thirty-five of his most significant works (twenty-five paintings and ten drawings), form the core of this exceptional exhibition documenting the transition from the gloominess of Dutch interiors to the almost unbearable brightness of the southern sun. In his self images more than any other subject Van Gogh sought to portray both an interior world and an exterior world.
The exhibition thus features the greatly acclaimed Self-Portrait as an Artist, painted in 1888: a perfect, extreme synthesis of the unsolved tension between a journey as leading to somewhere and a journey to isolation.
