Exhibitions in 2022 around the world Showing Vincent Van Gogh Artworks

Van Gogh in America

Museum: Detroit Institute of Arts, USA
Dates: October 2, 2022 through January 22, 2023

Americans were pretty slow to recognize the genius of Vincent Van Gogh. It was only in 1923 that a few of his paintings were exhibited in the United States for the very first time. Strangely it took Irving Stone’s 1934 historical fiction novel “Lust for Life” and the 1956 movie based on this novel to expose mainstream Americans to Van Gogh’s artworks.

Detroit Institute of the Arts deserves to host this exhibition as it was the first US museum to purchase a Van Gogh painting. In this exhibition, you will view over 60 Vincent Van Gogh artworks, including mostly paintings but also some drawings.

Where: Musée d’Orsay in Paris, France

During his 70 days in Auvers, he completed 70 paintings, an incredible achievement. Then as we all know, Vincent sadly shot himself while in the wheatfields.

The exhibition curated by both incredible museums, will also explore Van Gogh’s rise to fame.

Van Gogh in Drenthe

When: 11 September 2023 until 7 January 2024
Where: Drents Museum, Assen , Netherlands

This is the first time that a Van Gogh exhibition is devoted to the two months in the autumn of 1883, in which he spent his time painting in the remote province of Drenthe, in the north. Here he had a difficult life and made it his goal to be the painter of peasants. During those times, the only people painted were the rich and famous (those who could pay).

Today only five oil paintings and 17 drawings and watercolours from Drenthe remain. The Drents Museum curator, Annemiek Rens, set out to find these rare pieces in different museums and will be displaying many of them in this exhibition.

In addition to the visit in the Drenthe museum, you will have an opportunity to explore the nearby sites where Van Gogh painted and worked.

Klimt: Inspired by Van Gogh, Rodin, Matisse

Where: Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam
When: 7 October until 8 January 2023

Where: Belvedere, Vienna, Austria
When: 3 February until 29 May 2023

This amazing exhibition is the result of close collaboration between the Belvedere and the Van Gogh Museum. In 2023, the Lower Belvedere will open a comprehensive exhibition, focusing on the artists who influenced the style of Gustav Klimt. Comparisons, carefully chosen, of his paintings with artworks that verifiably inspired him bring about intriguing encounters with works by Alma-Tadema, MacDonald-Macintosh, Toorop, and Whistler as well as Monet and Rodin, van Gogh and Matisse. This exhibition will be showcasing about 90 paintings, drawings, and sculptures from Gustav Klimt and those artists who influenced him.
