Van Gogh
From February 22 to June 30 2024, the City of Trieste and Arthemisia present an extraordinary exhibition dedicated to the most beloved artist of all time, Vincent van Gogh.

This presentation which is staged in the city of Trieste is known as the "world record exhibition". In Rome, it attracted a staggering 600,000 visitors in just a few months.

In addition, the event will feature a special attraction: the two portraits of Monsieur and Madame Ginoux (the owners of Vincent van Gogh's favourite café in the French town of Arles). One of the two paintings, completed in the year 1890, is housed in the Kröller-Müller Museum - which has provided almost all the works in the exhibition in Trieste. The second portrait is instead kept in the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in Rome.

The couple, who were close friends of the artist and were portrayed by Vincent van Gogh, will be reunited in Trieste, where they will be close to each other once again.

Vincent van Gogh (Zundert, March 30 1853 - Auvers-sur-Oise, July 29 1890) had a difficult life, hovering on the edge of madness. He was troubled and restless, which brought him to a tragic end when he committed suicide at the age of just 37. Like many great artists, his work was not understood during his lifetime, but today he is the most famous artist in the world, an icon in the history of art and much loved by the general public.

The exhibition in Trieste, curated by Maria Teresa Benedetti and Francesca Villanti and realised in collaboration with the Kröller-Müller Museum in the city of Otterlo - showcases more than 50 of van Gogh's masterpieces, complemented by an extensive educational presentation, featuring videos, emotional and scenographic halls and much more.
