“​Van Gogh: Of Wheat Fields & Clouded Skies” at The Grand on Tuesday, February 12th

ELLSWORTH, Maine- The Grand presents on the giant Coastal Eye Care screen a series of great “Art on Screen” tours in hi definition and through its state-of-the-art digital projection system beginning on February 12th at 6 pm with “Van Gogh: Of Wheat Fields & Clouded Skies.” Tickets are $10 for adults, $9 for seniors, and $8 for Grand Members for general admission seating, and are available at The Grand box office (207) 667-9500 or online at www.grandonline.org.

A new look at Van Gogh, through the legacy of the largest private collector of artworks by the Dutch painter: Helene Kröller-Müller (1869-1939), who, in the early 20th Century, ended up buying nearly 300 of his works, paintings and drawings included. The program, “Amid wheat fields and clouded skies” at the Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza, brings together 40 paintings and 85 drawings from the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, Holland, now home to Helene’s heritage. This is an exhibition that will not only tell us about Van Gogh’s art and his genius, but it will also allow us to understand the importance of drawing as part of his artistic technique. His seemingly instinctive, ‘au premier coup’ canvases were the result of long, preparatory studies, not sketches but complete works of art in themselves, where the broken flow of lines that characterizes the style of his paintings, can already be found. (2017. UK 1 hr. 10 min. Produced by Nexo Digital and 3d Produzioni. Not Rated.)
