For the first time in more than 20 years an exhibition highlighting the work of the Dutch impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh will take place in Rome.

The exhibition is hosted in the (Complesso del) Vittoriano, behind the Fori Imperiali in the center of Italy’s capital. The exhibition, titled “Vincent van Gogh: Timeless Countryside and Modern City”, will last until February 6th, 2011. During this period, over 100 of Van Gogh’s masterpieces will be displayed in the Vittoriano Complex. Two thirds of the paintings were done by the artist himself, while the others are pieces by painters like Cèzanne and Millet, Seurat and Gauguin, in short artists who greatly influenced the Dutch master during his short life.

Many of the paintings are on loan from other major European and North-American museums. There are also works from private collections, that can only rarely be seen by the general public.

As the title of the exhibition indicates, the theme is the contrast between the timelessness of the countryside and the speed and ever changing nature of life in the city.
