Van Gogh: Brush With Genius

Alternate Title(s): Moi, Van Gogh (French)

bigImage Van Gogh leads viewers on a journey through the surprisingly short 9-year period of the artist's career during which he painted more than 900 paintings. Told from the perspectives of three main characters -- Ellen, a museum researcher, Peter, a film director, and Vincent van Gogh himself -- Van Gogh follows in the artist's footsteps, traveling from the Netherlands to Auvers-sur-Oise and passing through Arles, Saint-Rémy and Paris. From the dazzling yellow of the artist's famous cornfields to the deep blue of his famous night sky, audiences will rediscover the source of some of the most important works in art history.
