Vincents life and works. A private Powerpoint presentation, online, using Zoom, discussing the life and work of Vincent van Gogh.If we would follow the timeline of Vincent’s career, only the last 3 years would be riveting and worth while. Therefore author and art historian Drs Kees Kaldenbach first shows a series of great masterworks from 1887-1890 and then retraces steps to see how his life developed after his birth in 1853, a painful series of mishaps and failures. A lesser man than Vincent would have given up! Excerpts from my book on Van Gogh.

If one takes the helicopter view, and if one divides Vincent van Gogh’s entire timeline from 1853 to 1890, it is clear that only the last three years gave rise to fantastic world class art.  Everything made before is rather dull, brown and grey with line drawings that would make an art professor cringe.  So in this talk I jump right into the fabulous Landscape at La Crau near Arles, and we admire the Vase with Irises, made in the madhouse, and the works made after release in Auvers-sur-Oise, such as the Corn Field with Crows.

From there we backtrack to his humble beginnings.






Gauguin and  Vincent van Gogh. How did their life intersected –  with dramatic results.   These wo personalities rubbed each other and the local population. A private Powerpoint presentation, online, using Zoom. In this, we include the latest letter written by Vincent and Gauguin to an art friend, in which they discuss visits to the local brothel. For the sake of bringing new themes into the paintings.







Gauguin escaping, travelling to faraway islands. Upsetting the local population. Later on Gauguin went to overseas French territories and lived the life of a hippie –  Hedonist, also in sexual matters. The local authorities were up in arms at his behaviour. He bedded very young girls and suffered from a nasty disease. A private Powerpoint presentation, online, using Zoom.
