"Light! Art, technology and society in the Industrial Age, 1750-1900 "
2000-10-20 until 2001-02-11
Van Gogh Museum
Amsterdam, , NL

Man has always been fascinated by light. In the very beginning, magical powers were attributed to it. With a better understanding of its principles new applications were created, which exerted tremendous influence on life and work. This ambitious exhibition gives an impression of the revolutionary changes with respect to light that took place in the Western world between 1750 and 1900.

By means of approximately 300 objects, the evolution of light and the resulting impact on social, economic and artistic realms is highlighted. Included are some spectacular loans, such as the Statue of Liberty from the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris, the earliest projection lantern in the world and Claude Monetís Rouen Cathedral: The portal (in the morning). Other objects that speak to the imagination are the first sharp photographs of the moon, models of lighthouses and the designs for the lamps on Amsterdamís Dam Square. Occupying a special place is the museumís own world famous Potato eaters by Vincent van Gogh.
