Art on Screen at The Grand: “Of Wheat Fields and Clouded Skies”
February 12 @ 6:00 pm$10 adults; $9 students/seniors; $8 Grand members
This film at The Grand offers a new look at Van Gogh, through the legacy of the largest private collector of artworks by the Dutch painter: Helene Kröller-Müller (1869-1939), who, in the early 20th century, ended up buying nearly 300 of his works, paintings and drawings included.
The film brings together 40 paintings and 85 drawings from the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, Holland, now home to Helene’s heritage. This is an exhibition that will not only tell us about Van Gogh’s art and his genius, but it will also allow us to understand the importance of drawing as part of his artistic technique. His seemingly instinctive “au premier coup” canvases were the result of long, preparatory studies, not sketches but complete works of art in themselves, where the broken flow of lines that characterizes the style of his paintings can already be found.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors/students and $8 for Grand members. For more information, call 667-9500 or visit www.grandonline.org.
