A major Van Gogh show is opening this weekend at New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MOMA). I attended the member’s preview today.
I love Van Gogh. Colors. Life. Struggles. Expression. Passion.
Spectacular paintings and drawings and such at this show, but . . . it was too cramped, dark, and confined. The show itself was seemingly everything Van Gogh was not. It is well worth seeing as there has never been this sort of show before, but claustrophobic and dimly-lit cramped space-fearing folks beware.
With so much space in this newly renovated and enlarged museum, is this really the best they could do for one of the most loved, respected, and tragic painters in Western Art?
