Van Gogh : " Calme et Exaltation. Van Gogh dans la collection Bührle "

Arles - Foundation Vincent Van Gogh Arles - Exhibition - Du 04 mars au 17 septembre

Cette exposition présente huit toiles de Vincent van Gogh, dont sept en provenance de la collection de l’industriel suisse Emil Bührle (1890-1956). Six d’entre elles appartiennent désormais à la Collection Fondation E.G. Bührle de Zurich. La huitième œuvre est quant à elle prêtée par le musée Van Gogh d’Amsterdam. Réunies, elles reviennent sur les différentes périodes de réflexion stylistique intense et d’expérimentations picturales qui ont façonné la carrière du peintre ; en Hollande, à Paris, en Provence et à Auvers-sur-Oise.

Dans l’une des œuvres les plus remarquables, Branches de marronniers en fleurs, peinte à Auvers-sur-Oise en mai 1890, Van Gogh nous donne à voir l’exaltation du printemps. La touche y apparaît résolument vivace, les couleurs franches et la composition audacieuse. Au regard d’autres œuvres importantes, telle Les Ponts d’Asnières, produite trois ans plus tôt à Paris alors que Van Gogh était très proche des enseignements de l’impressionnisme et du pointillisme, Branches de marronniers en fleurs montre l’apogée d’un style pictural qu’il s’est acharné à perfectionner tout au long de sa carrière.
