November 25. – 16:00 - 18:00
2018, color, subtitled, italian film, 70 minutes
directed by: Giovanni Piscaglia
In this art-referencing film, Vincent Van Gogh’s work is approached from a whole new perspective: from the perspective of Helene Kröller-Müller (1869-1939), the largest private collector of Dutch paintings, who bought nearly three hundred painters at the beginning of the 20th century.
While filming through the life of a collecting woman, she takes the viewers to the unparalleled architectural wonders of the Kröller-Müller Museum in De Huge Veluwe National Park and the invaluable works of art. Van Gogh’s existential and spiritual fights are revealed in the film through a paragraph of Theo’s letters, which also guides the audience from various places in Paris, from Paris to Provence. The special feature of the film is to present in a comprehensive way both the collection and the flaming passion for art that led to its creation. The other exhibition, which serves as the main conductor of the film, is the exhibition of the Vicenza Basilica Palladiana Between Wheatfields and Cloudy Skies, which depicts forty paintings and eighty-five drawings from the collection of the Kröller-Müller Museum. The special feature of the film is to tell not only Van Gogh’s art and genius, but it also helps to understand the importance of drawing in his artistic style.
