Van Gogh and the Olive Groves is the first exhibition to examine and reunite a series of 15 paintings executed by the artist over the course of six months in 1889, during his year-long stay at the Saint-Paul-de-Mausole asylum in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. In addition to presenting new research findings that shed light on Van Gogh’s technique and materials, the show explores his general tendency to work in series and shows how his treatment of this particular theme evolved in response both to the influence of other artists and to his own shifting emotional and psychological states.
