The exhibition AMID WHEAT FIELDS AND CLOUDED SKIES was held at the Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza, and brought together 40 paintings and 85 drawings from the Kröller-Müller Museum in Otterlo, the Netherlands. Helene Kröller-Müller ended up buying nearly 300 of Van Gogh’s works.
This documentary tells the story of this collection and of the burning passion for art that led to it. It does not only tell the story of Van Gogh’s art and his genius, but also highlights the importance of drawing as part of his artistic technique. His seemingly instinctive ‘au premier coup’ canvases were the result of long, preparatory studies; not sketches but complete works of art in themselves.
