In the midst of holiday festivities, indulge yourself in art. Join art muse Clare Kunny at the Norton Simon Museum to consider Van Gogh’s painting of The Bedroom on loan from The Art Institute of Chicago. This intimate painting of the Dutch artist’s bedroom in Arles, France, tells of his search for friendship, and his ambitious hope to establish a community of artists. We’ll consider it in the context of the Simon’s fine collection of Van Gogh paintings.
