The EY Exhibition Van Gogh and Britain > 27th March – 11th August 2019
In 2019 this major exhibition brings together 40 works by Vincent van Gogh to reveal how he was inspired by Britain and how he inspired British artists.
Still Life with Bottles and a Cowrie Shell
The Gallery Diane de Polignac is delighted to have found this rare Vincent Van Gogh Artwork in a Private Collection which the Noordbrabants Museum acquired for 2.5 millions Euros.
This remarkable work was one of just three in private hands from a series of thirteen still lifes that Van Gogh painted from his parents’ home in Nuenen. Still Life with Bottles and a Cowrie Shell was amongst the works left in the care of the artist’s mother when he travelled to Antwerp in 1885.
This autumn the painting will be given pride of place in the museum’s remarkable selection of works from Vincent Van Gogh’s Brabant period.
