Rome hosts major Van Gogh exhibition

Rome's Palazzo Bonaparte stages a major show of Van Gogh paintings.

The exhibition comprises 50 works including a celebrated self portrait of the artist from 1887, three years before his death.

The show runs until 7 May and all the works on display come from the Kröller Müller Museum in Otterlo in the Netherlands.

The exhibition makes reference to the places where Van Gogh stayed, with a particular focus on the artist's time in Paris.

Alongside his celebrated self portrait, the exhibition includes The sower (June 1888), The hospital garden in Saint-Rémy (1889), The Ravine (1889), Sorrowing old man (1890).

Palazzo Bonaparte, located in Piazza Venezia in central Rome, launched two exhibitions devoted to Bill Viola and Jago last year.

Owned by Generali Italia, Italy's largest insurance company, Palazzo Bonaparte is run in partnership with Arthemisia which specialises in organising blockbuster exhibitions.

The 17th-century palazzo is best known as the home of Maria Letizia Ramolino, Napoleon's mother, who watched the world go by from the building's green balcony from 1818 until her death in 1836.

For Van Gogh exhibition details including tickets see Palazzo Bonaparte website.
