Double lecture on John Russell and Vincent van Gogh.
Australian painter John Russell and Dutchman Vincent van Gogh became close friends in France in the late 19th century, both foreigners enmeshed in Europe’s most progressive artistic community.
Nienke Bakker, curator of paintings at Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum and Wayne Tunnicliffe, the Gallery’s head of Australian art, explore the artistic affinities of the two artists in this double lecture on the opening day of the exhibition John Russell.
