TAIPEI, TAIWAN – An exhibition entitled Van Gogh: the
Flaming Soul showcasing more than 70 drawings and 20 paintings by Vincent van
Gogh from the Kröller-Müller Museum’s collection opened at the National Museum
of History in Taipei (Taiwan) in December.
In preparation, a delegation
from the Kröller-Müller Museum travelled to Taipei at the end of October to
discuss the various aspects of an exhibition of this scale with those involved.
Topics of discussion vary from transport, security, light and climate conditions
to the design of the rooms and the content and appearance of the accompanying
catalogue. The collection will be on display until March 28, 2010.
