VINCENT WAS HERE in Antwerp

25/6 - 26/9/2021

  • Rossaert 9558 59
  • A new VINCENT WAS HERE exhibition can be seen in Antwerp, where Vincent van Gogh stayed for three months in 1885-1886.

    The exhibition is on view in Rossaert, an art gallery and bookstore. Every exhibition is different and adapted tot the space. In this VINCENT WAS HERE exhibition, the accent lies on the still lifes: from dark Brabant still lifes in Rembrandtian light to exuberantly colourful still lifes and bouquets from Vincent's Southern period.

    This Vincent was here exhibition is part of the AntwerpPhoto Festival which takes place in the nearby Loodswezen (near the MAS). A walk has been mapped out from the Loodswezen to photo galleries and art spaces in Antwerp.

    Rossaert used to be a 'klakkenwinkel', a shop selling sailor's caps and uniforms, located in Antwerp's Schipperskwartier. The century-old house is situated against St Paul's Church and has three floors. It has been meticulously restored while retaining the original shop fittings. Rossaert is a branch of Gallery Ronny Van de Velde. The book VINCENT WAS HERE is published by Ronny Van de Velde and is available in Rossaert, in the bookshop of Antwerp Photo and online.
