Tate Britain Exhibition

The EY Exhibition Van Gogh and Britain

Van Gogh painting Self Portrait, Autumn 1889

Vincent van Gogh Self-Portrait Autumn 1889 National Gallery of Art, Washington. Collection of Mr and Mrs John Hay Whitney, 1998.74.5

This major exhibition brings together over 50 works by Vincent van Gogh to reveal how he was inspired by Britain and how he inspired British artists

The EY Exhibition: Van Gogh and Britain presents the largest collection of Van Gogh’s paintings in the UK for nearly a decade. Some of his most famous works will be brought together from around the world – including Shoes, Starry Night over the Rhône, L'Arlésienne, and two works he made while a patient at the Saint-Paul Asylum, At Eternity’s Gate and Prisoners Exercising. They will be joined by the very rarely lent Sunflowers from London’s National Gallery.

Van Gogh lived in England as a young man for several crucial years. He walked the streets alone, dreaming of the future. He fell in love with British culture, especially the novels of Charles Dickens and George Eliot. And he was inspired by the art he saw here, including paintings by Constable and Millais which are featured in the exhibition. They affected his paintings throughout his career.

The exhibition also looks at the British artists who were inspired by Van Gogh, including Francis Bacon, David Bomberg, and the young Camden Town painters. It shows how his vision set British artists on the road to modern art.

Day tickets are likely to sell out quickly so come early to avoid disappointment. You may need to wait between your ticket purchase and your timed exhibition entry.

Once these tickets are gone the exhibition will be sold out for the day. If you plan to buy tickets this way, aim to get to the gallery for when it opens and be prepared that you may be buying tickets for a much later time slot that day.
