Van Gogh is coming to NY!

Once again MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) in New York City will be holding a Van Gogh exhibit. MoMA houses Starry Night in it's collection.

For all Van Gogh lovers, tickets are available online, here.

I saw the Van Gogh exhibit the last time it was in the city, and made a pilgrimage to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

This is the only artist i will never tire of. If anyone wants to go with me, let me know!

mmmm.....I'd like to go to New York just for the exhibit...

I'll meet you in front of the museum. lol
I also went to his museum in Amsterdam.
He has left more than 800 paintings and what is shown is so little.
Enjoy the exhibition.

I was in Holland, when I saw a painting of his that rocked my visual world.

It was a simple still-life of white grapes. The thing that blew me away, as a painter, was that way back then, he'd used a highlight of the very palest of pinks. It was just a suggestion of movement over the green grapes and it was exquisite.

Now, from colour theory in Art School, I know that red is a forward colour. But Van Gogh knew it, instinctively. Like an oft-quoted phrase, we may get weary of his most famous paintings.

But to actually see his work in person, particularly his formative work, is a reminder of what we can achieve by following our own truth.

@Immi, I wish it was traveling to other countries too.

@Raspberry- not going????

@Gianna, I hope you are well enough to travel soon, with hubby.

@Ana, I would like to meet you too. I loved the museum in Amsterdam. Come to NY. Bring Stan!

@Pink Floyd, I wish I had money to send you a plane ticket...

@Stephany- ditto what I said for Pink Floyd. Only afterward we would go shopping!

@Dano- I hope you can go. Do you live on the bus route or train route?
