"Van Gogh and Gauguin: The Studio of the South"
2001-09-22 until 2002-01-13
Art Institute of Chicago
Chicago, IL, USA

Co-organized by The Art Institute of Chicago and the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, Van Gogh and Gauguin: The Studio of the South examines the personal and professional history of Vincent van Gogh (1853-90) and Paul Gauguin (1848-1903). Their mutual admiration, rivalrous friendship, extended professional dialogue, and brief period of collaboration in Arles in 1888 constitute one of the most dramatically revealing sagas in the history of Modern art.

The story of two artists who lived, and battled, with each other in the struggle to realize their potential is at once familiar and untold. Over 150 works will be included in this exhibition, including 130 paintings, 16 drawings, and 9 ceramic pieces.

An extensive, 418-page exhibition catalogue entitled Van Gogh and Gauguin: The Studio of the South will accompany the exhibition. For those visitors who would like to have a memento of many of the works of art in the exhibition and a brief text on the lives of the artists, the Art Institute is also offering a smaller publication, Van Gogh and Gauguin: The Studio of the South, Highlights of the Exhibition to complement the more comprehensive catalogue. Additionally, as part of the Art Institutes Artists in Focus series, two other publications, Van Gogh and Gauguin, have been released in conjunction with the exhibition. Each of these books numbers over 100 pages and features works from the museums permanent collection. Other publications include Sunflowers, by Debra Mancoff, an examination of the sunflower in art from pre-Columbian times to the early 20th century, and The Yellow House: Vincent Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin Side by Side, by Susan Goldman Rubin with illustrations by Jos. A. Smith.
