Van Gogh: Up Close

Today we spent the day at the National Art Gallery in Ottawa, where there was the special exhibition Van Gogh: Up Close; a well curated selection of 40 artworks by the Dutch Master, covering his stay in the north and south shores of France. Also as part of the exhibit there are two small side exhibitions of early 19 century photographs, and Japanese wood prints, which Van Gogh himself collected, and drawings.

Also, with the entrance to the exhibit it’s included the entrance to the standard general collection, one in the contemporary art section, a 24 hr. movie called The Clock, which extracts sequences from movies where clocks are depicted, synchronized with the real -life time of day. This movie is a joint purchase from the National Gallery of Canada and the Boston Museum for the Arts. I am wondering if you could purchase a copy somewhere.
