The Dutch in Paris

In the 19th century Paris had a hold on the hearts of many artists, they left their home towns and all flocked to the magical city of lights. During The Dutch in Paris exposition The Van Gogh Museum is exploring the love affair between Dutch artists and the French capital. Seen through the eyes of eight painters, the museum tells the tale of why the Dutch were so drawn to Paris. This fall, let the works of the likes of Breitner, Van Gogh, and Mondrian show you how the City of Light influenced these artists, and vice versa.
