ART HISTORY LECTURE: Who Shot Vincent? The Brilliance and Tragedy of Vincent Van Gogh
with Jim Caldwell
Wednesday, January 26, 2022 - 5:30 PM
Artist and architect Jim Caldwell will present a lecture about the fascinating life and mysterious death of Vincent Van Gogh. Virtually unknown during his lifetime, Vincent is now one of the most cherished artists in the entire history of art. Many consider him to be the father of modern art. His use of color, heavy pigmentation and abstractions introduced us to a whole new way of looking at the world. Although most believe that he committed suicide, new facts have come to light that challenge that notion. This presentation includes more than 50 of Vincent’s beautiful paintings.
