    Remembered by many for his Blue Period or as the artist who cut off his ear, his work has been an inspiration to artists around the world.

    Van Gogh’s presentation of traditional subjects and painting techniques deviated from many traditional artists. In an effective attempt to provide different perspectives of familiar objects, his pieces suggest a concern with the emotional experience of viewing a scene.

    Advance ticket purchase is recommended. Admission to the exhibit is $25 for adults, which includes an audio tour and access to the rest of the museum.
