Circles Presents Vincent Van Gogh: The Man and the Artist

Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890) is perhaps the most beloved and recognizable modern artist. There is congruency in every one of his acts; from his selflessness as a missionary in the Borinage and his desire to live like the peasants he painted, to his taking in and protecting a pregnant prostitute. His paintings are the visual equivalent to his life.  

Please join us as Gregorio Luke, an internationally acknowledged speaker, takes us on a journey through Vincent Van Gogh’s early life as a missionary and art dealer; his artistic formation, as well as his mastery of draftsmanship and extraordinary use of color. He will discuss the most controversial episodes of Van Gogh’s life: the mutilation of his ear, the conflicts with Gaugin and his internment in mental institutions. Luke will also explore Van Gogh’s unexplained aspects of his “suicide” and new theories of a possible homicide. 

Please feel free to bring a guest who is interested in learning more about becoming a Circles of Support or Corporate Council member.
