The Van Gogh exhibit at the Columbus Museum is an experience to be seen

The Columbus Museum of Art pays homage to Vincent Van Gogh and his contemporaries in a spectacular, thought-provoking and must-see exhibition.

“Through Vincent’s Eyes: Van Gogh and His Sources” celebrates the tortured post-impressionist with 17 of his signature works, mixed with more than 100 paintings, prints and sculptures by artists who influenced and were admired by van Gogh.

The beautifully installed exhibition places van Gogh’s works on a deep blue background, surrounded by white walls of meaningful works created by Van Gogh’s contemporaries.

So it is possible to take a 15-minute “Louvre” tour to find and inspect only the Van Gogh works. But the viewers would do themselves a great disservice to go this way; throughout the exhibition there are artistic gems of people like Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, to name a few.
