CCR Talks: The Women Behind Van Gogh - April 13, 2023

Note: Change of date. 
Vincent Van Gogh died in Auvers-sur-Oise in the north of France in 1890. At his death, he was a desperate, unknown artist leaving behind a huge, unsold mass of paintings which today are considered masterpieces. His loving brother Theo, his universal heir and the only one at that time who appreciated his art, tragically died soon after. So, how did it then come to pass that today van Gogh’s artwork is so well-known, having made its way to posters, bookshop shelves, auction houses, and the walls of museums worldwide? As it turns out, it was thanks to the efforts of two amazing women that Van Gogh became the universally loved artist we know today. Please join us for an evening aperitivo lecture in the Trieste neighborhood to find out more about their amazing stories.
