Lecture Highlights
Learn how Vincent van Gogh invented a new painting technique and what method allowed him to elevate the art of the XX century to a new level;
Try to find out whether the artist was crazy – or is this a myth to promote his art?
Look at the world through Van Gogh's eyes;
Talk about the most scandalous friendship of the turn of the century – between Van Gogh and Gauguin and learn about all versions of their conflict which almost cost one of them his life;
Insanity, schizophrenia, porphyria, hysteria, bipolar disorder, manic-depressive psychosis… We can endlessly list the alleged illnesses of Vincent van Gogh. There are many myths about his personality, sometimes they are completely unsupported by historical data, and based on misinterpretations of his words.

More than 10 years of correspondence with his brother Theo perhaps is the only thing that gave us an opportunity to look into the thoughts of genius, to learn about his personal approach to art, to get to know him as a person.

Unlike the letters, where we see a sincere, purposeful and sensitive person, evidence of his contemporaries is too contradictory.

Where is the truth? We will find out at our lecture.
Discover what place women had in artist's life and what connection was between him and Salvador Dali.

Who is the lecturer?
My major interest is the art of the XX century. I am sure there are no complicated themes or things, but there are lots of wrong explanations. I will not overload you with some odd historical information, but I will teach you how to interpret different artworks by yourself
