In the exhibition Van Gogh Alive, Dalí Museum visitors have the opportunity to literally step into Van Gogh’s art through a dynamic multimedia experience. But how else can we enter Vincent’s world?

In this talk, art historian Sheramy Bundrick discusses some of the exciting ways modern scholars seek to understand this incredibly famous yet enigmatic artist better: through new study of primary sources, innovations in technology, and the artworks themselves. She also shares her experiences as a historical novelist and author of Sunflowers: A Novel of Vincent Van Gogh (HarperCollins, 2009), where telling a story meant looking at Vincent in a whole new way. The Museum is partnering with Tombolo Books to offer copies of Bundrick’s novel, including copies signed by the author.

Location: Will Raymund Theater (and live on YouTube)

The cost to attend this event is free with purchase of a General Admission ticket to the Museum. It will also be streamed live on our YouTube channel.
