The exhibition’s curator Dr Karen Serres in conversation with Dr Anne Puetz

Today, Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings achieve fantastic sums at auctions, his style is unmistakable, and his popular recognition arguably the highest of any modern painter. Collectively, we feel that we ‘know’ this artist.  The Courtauld Gallery’s exhibition Van Gogh’s Self-Portraits (3 February – 8 May 2022), the first ever devoted to the artist’s self-portraits across his entire career, asks us to think again, drawing on new research about his social networks, and about the works themselves.   Exhibition curator Dr Karen Serres will reflect on both entrenched myths and the new perspectives gained about Van Gogh as man and artist.

This event has passed.
