How did van Gogh find colour?


Living for two years in Paris changed Vincent van Gogh. He might not have realised it at the time, but as he met other artists in the French capital, he gradually moved away from his dark, sombre Dutch works – towards much brighter palettes and expressive brush work.

Van Gogh’s transitional story is currently being told at the Eykyn Maclean Gallery in central London – with paintings by the artist and his contemporaries on show. Take a look with gallery partner, Nicholas Maclean.
