Through June 12, 2022, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam hosts the retrospective Van Gogh and the Olive Groves. The project presents Vincent van Gogh's paintings of olive trees for the first time, made between June and December 1889, during the artist's stay at the asylum in Saint Rémy de Provence, France. Through a major collaborative effort and loans from museums in the United States and Europe (from the Minneapolis Institute of Art, Gothenburg Museum of Art, Basil & Elise Goulandris Foundation, Athens), the exhibition presents a rare opportunity to see the artist's struggle to immortalize one of the natural forms that most aroused his interest.
