Van Gogh Trailer Tate. The EY exhibition Van Gogh and Britain. On show until 11 August

The EY Exhibition: Van Gogh and Britain presents the largest collection of Van Gogh’s paintings in the UK for nearly a decade.

Some of Van Gogh’s most famous works brought together from around the world.  They include ShoesStarry Night on the RhôneL’Arlésienne.  Plus two works he made while a patient at the Saint-Paul Asylum At Eternity’s Gate and Prisoners Exercising. They are joined by the very rarely lent Sunflowers from London’s National Gallery.

This major exhibition brings together over 50 works by Vincent Van Gogh.  It reveals how he was inspired by Britain and how he inspired British artists.

Van Gogh lived in England as a young man for several crucial years. He walked the streets alone, dreaming of the future. He fell in love with British culture, especially the novels of Charles Dickens and George Eliot. And he was inspired by the art he saw here, including paintings by Constable and Millais which are featured in the exhibition. They affected his paintings throughout his career.
