Van Gogh Added to Hammer's Fall Schedule
|Vincent van Gogh, Langlois Bridge, 1888. LACMA|
Van Gogh immortalized Arles postman Joseph Roulin in half a dozen paintings. He did only three portrait drawings of Roulin, and by coincidence two are in Los Angeles, at LACMA and the Getty. As far as I know, the two drawings have never been shown together.
"Van Gogh in L.A." runs less than a month, from Oct. 8 to Nov 3, 2019. Walsh lectures on Oct. 20, Oct. 27, and Nov. 3. Lecture tickets are free but must be reserved; see Hammer site for details.
