From May 2013 to January 2014 the Van Gogh Museum, in close collaboration with the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands and Shell Nederland, will present the results of an innovative and interdisciplinary research on Van Gogh’s working methods in the context of his time to a larger public.

An ambitious exhibition at the Van Gogh Museum, accompanying publications and an international symposium, will shed more light on Van Gogh’s use of an impressive range of materials and techniques in order to understand to what extent his studio practice was influenced by other artists and the conditions in which he lived and worked.

Scholars (curators, researchers, conservators, conservation scientists, physicists and chemists) working in the wider field of 19th-century studies are warmly invited to attend the symposium. The organization invites broad participation. Therefore, we would be most grateful if you could forward this announcement to possible interested parties. 

Registration for the symposium is possible until 15 June 2013. The registration fee includes admission to both museums (Van Gogh Museum and Stedelijk Museum), lunch and refreshments, as well as an evening reception and visits to the exhibition, Van Gogh at work.
