— Dreams of Nature. Symbolism from Van Gogh to Kandinsky

Last week, when I was in Amsterdam, I went to see this beautiful exhibition in the Van Gogh Museum.

It is the first exhibition dedicated to the symbolist landscape in Europe.

 

Some 70 poetical and evocative paintings of nature from the period 1880–1910 (both from renowned artists like Gauguin, Monet, Munch, Mondriaan, Kandinsky and Van Gogh as well as lesser know artists) offer a new perspective on the symbolism movement.

 

The artists used their landscapes to represent their vision of death, dreams, infinity and the cosmos, feelings of nationalism or ideas about science and the modern age.

 

You can visit the exhibition until 17th June.
