Reasons for trip

If you are interested in the arts, you should look out for “Exhibition on Screen” – a fantastic way to see well-known art works up close, much closer than you could see at a gallery. They feature the work of major artists and are shown throughout the year at cinemas around the UK (see the poster and details).

I have just been to see Vincent van Gogh at Theatr Mwldan in Cardigan, Wales. Obviously, you recognise many of his works they included, but there was so much more than I realised! It is a brilliant production showing paintings and letters from his early years up to his death – he shot himself in the chest and died from his wounds.
The newly-redesigned Vincent van Gogh gallery/museum in Amsterdam is a beautiful setting and there was discussion with curators and family about how they chose to present his life to the public – very impressive.

It is a very moving story – his life, his personal struggles, his completely new approach to painting and especially his relationship with his brother, Theo. To make it more informative, they used an actor in little scenarios throughout – brilliant casting! Think of any of van Gogh’s self-portraits and this actor could be him!

This is the 4th such film I have seen over the last year, and from the end of May there is one featuring the Impressionists, so definitely worth seeing.
