LONDON – Bringing together the largest group of Van Gogh paintings shown in the UK for nearly a decade, The EY Exhibition: Van Gogh and Britain, opening March 27 at Tate Britain, will reveal how Van Gogh was inspired by British art, literature and culture throughout his career, from John Constable and John Everett Millais to William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens.

More than 45 works by the artist, on loan from international public and private collections, will also highlight how Van Gogh’s uncompromising art and life inspired modern British artists from Walter Sickert to Francis Bacon.

Examples of exhibited works include: Self-Portrait 1889, L’Arlésienne 1890, Starry Night on the Rhône, and the rarely loaned Sunflowers 1888.

The exhibition runs through August 11, 2019.
