COVID-19 Lockdown Item 23 - Vincent van Gogh - Portrait of a Man at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

April 29, 2020

About a year ago we had a long wait for a return flight from Houston, so we made a trip to the Museum of Fine Arts sight unseen. As luck would have it, were rewarded to the Vincent van Gogh: His Life in Art exhibit on perhaps its last day. It was a tad crowded, but manageable.


This is Portrait of a Man from 1888. I was drawn to the piece as the style looked....slightly different than his other works. It was an immaculate show, and one thing I liked were the contemporary cherry frames that were used on many of the works. Striking colors I this one.


I was curious as to where this pieces home is - Collection Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo, the Netherlands
