Nature humaine – Humaine nature

For Vincent van Gogh, nature was not only one of the principal subjects explored in his art, it was also where he found a joyful and creative lucidity. Writing to his brother Theo from Provence in 1899, he declared: “I’m beginning to feel more the wholeness of the countryside in which I live.”

Building on Van Gogh’s ambition to develop his work in direct connection with the living world, the thematic exhibition Nature humaine – Humaine nature looks at the different ways in which today’s artists take up the concept of nature in order to bear witness to the upheavals connected to our notions and representations of the living world.
