Illustrated Art Lecture: Vincent Van Gogh: Roses & Irises
Thursday, May 14 at 1pm.
Presented by Thomas Germano, Professor of Art History at Farmingdale State College.
In May 1890, just before his release from the asylum at Saint-Remy, and only two months before his death, Van Gogh painted four bouquets of spring flowers: two of roses and two of irises, in contrasting formats and color schemes. This visual art lecture examines all of Van Gogh’s fl oral works, placing them into the context of his life and studio locations.
