In The Picture
In The Picture is the new exhibition at the Van Gogh Museum that looks into how a selection of the world’s best artists painted themselves. Nowadays many of us are takings selfies and using them as representations of ourselves at those moments in time. In the past the world’s best artists also painted ‘selfies’. This exhibition looks in detail about how artists represented themselves in paintings. What were they looking to convey ? What facets did they chose to include and what did they choose to gloss over ? A collection of 75 portraits of and by artists will seek to explain the methods, techniques and above all, the meaning of the works. For In The Picture tickets and details see the official page.
