Now Extended: Van Gogh Repetitions Repeats Its Run for an Additional Week

If you have not experienced Van Gogh Repetitions yet, you now have an additional week to do so. Due to popular demand, the Cleveland Museum of Art is pleased to offer art goers the opportunity to see Van Gogh Repetitions through Sunday, June 1, 2014 (previously Sunday, May 25). The CMA is the final venue of the exhibition currently on view in the museum’s Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation Exhibition Gallery.

In a collaboration with the Phillips Collection, this ground-breaking exhibition presents new insights into the art of Vincent van Gogh through a study of his répétitions—a term the artist used to describe a distinctive genre of works in his oeuvre. As the first exhibition to focus specifically on pairs or groups of works by Van Gogh that feature nearly identical compositions, this project seeks to make a valuable contribution to Van Gogh scholarship and to give broad audiences a new understanding of a fascinating aspect of the artist’s work. Originally inspired by the study of the close relationship between The Cleveland Museum of Art’s The Large Plane Trees and The Phillips Collection’s The Road Menders, both dating from late 1889, this exhibition explores, clarifies, and builds on that research by bringing together other works that shed light on Van Gogh's practice of producing repetitions.

Sixteen days remain to see Van Gogh Repetitions at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Experience it before it's gone! Advance reservations strongly recommended. Adult tickets for Van Gogh Repetitions are $15. Free for museum members. Tickets are available online or by phone at 216-421-7350.
