Live Lecture by Stella Grace Lyons

by Patty Stewart - 13:06 on 10 June 2020

'Broken by Life'
Vincent van Gogh's Masterpieces

This Friday's 11.00am live lecture is about one of the world's most famous painters - Vincent van Gogh. His works are iconic, his ear is near legendary and yet this artist considered himself to be a complete failure.

In his lifetime Vincent van Gogh only sold one painting. Yet today he is one of the most celebrated artists in the world, perceived by many as a genius.

The fascination with his life story is unrivalled. Because we know so much about van Gogh’s life, there is a tendency to look for signs of the artist’s
mental state in each of his works. But how much should we let our
knowledge of van Gogh’s personality affect our reading of his work?

This talk explores the artist’s life and his most celebrated masterpieces.
