Two museums lending Van Gogh works to Taipei exhibit

An exhibition highlighting nearly a hundred works by the master of impressionist art Van Gogh opened at the National Museum of History on Nanhai Road in Taipei on December 11. The collection will be on view until March 28 next year.

The Kroller-Mueller Museum in Holland has lent 20 oil paintings, 18 sketches done with charcoal pencil and 59 watercolors or works in pastel while the Pola Museum of Art in Japan has loaned a painting done just one month before Van Gogh’s death titled “Flower Vase with Thistle” (1890).

“Self-Portrait” (1887), “Country Road in Provence By Night” (1890) and “Cypresses With Two Figures” (1889) are some of Van Gogh’s major works in the exhibition. “Angelus” (after Jean Francois Millet) and “The Good Samaritan” (after Eugene Delacroix) are also in the show.

The borrowed Van Gogh collection has required an unprecedented insurance coverage of NT$25 billion.
