VAN GOGH’S BEDROOM AT THE NORTON SIMON WITH ART HISTORIAN CLARE KUNNY FEBRUARY 27 AT 1:00 SOLD OUT

One of Vincent Van Gogh's masterworks, "Van Gogh's Bedroom" hangs resplendently at the Norton Simon Museum until March 2017. Never before seen on the West Coast before, this painting, with its butter-yellow bed and bright green window, rush chairs and lavender walls, is one of the most beautiful and beloved domestic interiors in all of Western art.   
 
Please join art historian Clare Kunny for an up-close and personal look at this work -- Van Gogh's mediation on friendship, hope and regret -- a self-portrait of sorts that symbolizes the artist's existence and his search for peace and security.  So much to look at and so much to discuss -- Van Gogh's extraordinary color sense, the intensity of the brushwork and the personal and artistic context in which it was created.  Using the Norton Simon's extraordinary permanent collection of 20th European impressionist, post-impressionist works, Clare will provide a full picture of the genius of Van Gogh generally and the "Van Gogh Bedroom" in particular.
