Let's travel to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to see the beautiful paintings of Vincent Van Gogh.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has the best Impressionist art collection outside of France (second only to the Musée d'Orsay in Paris). They have 18 of Vincent's paintings, the largest collection outside of Europe, plus several other works including drawings and watercolors. We'll learn about Vincent's fascinating life and career through the Met's amazing art collection.

Our online/virtual program will show how these works relate to some of his well-known works at other museums. We'll also compare and contrast his art with several other Impressionists at the Metropolitan Museum of Art including Claude Monet, Mary Cassatt, Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Gauguin, Berthe Morison, Paul Cezanne, and many more!

This is the fourth in a series of programs on the Impressionism collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. YouTube recording links for the previous programs provided below.

Vincent Willem van Gogh (30 March 1853 - 29 July 1890) was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter who posthumously became one of the most famous and influential figures in Western art history. In a decade, he created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings, most of which date from the last two years of his life. They include landscapes, still lifes, portraits, and self-portraits, and are characterised by bold colours and dramatic, impulsive and expressive brushwork that contributed to the foundations of modern art. He was not commercially successful and, struggling with severe depression and poverty, died of a gunshot wound at the age of 37.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York City, colloquially "the Met", is the largest art museum in the United States. Its permanent collection contains over two million works. The main building at 1000 Fifth Avenue, along the Museum Mile on the eastern edge of Central Park in Manhattan's Upper East Side, is by area one of the world's largest art galleries. A much smaller second location, The Cloisters at Fort Tryon Park in Upper Manhattan, contains an extensive collection of art, architecture, and artifacts from medieval Europe.

The museum's permanent collection consists of works of art from classical antiquity and ancient Egypt, paintings, and sculptures from nearly all the European masters, and an extensive collection of American and modern art. The Met maintains extensive holdings of African, Asian, Oceanian, Byzantine, and Islamic art. The museum is home to encyclopedic collections of musical instruments, costumes, and accessories, as well as antique weapons and armor from around the world. Several notable interiors, ranging from 1st-century Rome through modern American design, are installed in its galleries.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in 1870 to bring art and art education to the American people and is one of the most-visited art museums in the world.
