RKD Netherland Institute for art History
From 13 October 2017 until 7 January 2017, the Van Gogh Museum is devoting itself to 'The Dutch in Paris 1789 - 1914. Van Spaendonck, Jongkind, Van Gogh, Van Dongen, Mondriaan.' A major exhibition, in close collaboration with the RKD, in which the work of the Dutch artists will be shown for the first time in conjunction with that of their French contemporaries.
Over 130 works of art will be on display, including iconic paintings like Van Gogh’s Boulevard de Clichy (1887) and jewels like Breitner’s Ballet-dancer (1886). The works of Dutch artists will be shown in conjunction with that of their French contemporaries like Monet, Degas, Signac, Pissarro, Cézanne, Braque en Picasso. The Dutch in Paris will show how the interaction between Dutch and French artists came about and the impact it had on both Dutch and French art. Not only did French artists influence their Dutch colleagues, the Dutch made their mark on French art too.
