Van Gogh and the Victorians: How Britain Influenced Modern Art
Van Gogh understood the Victorian values of ‘empathy’ and ‘compassion’ in a way that evaded his Parisian contemporaries. He developed a powerfully expressive form, which brought a humanity to the visual experiments of French Art. Fiona will trace the impact on British Art in the 19th and 20th century of this alternative visual tradition.
