Go, van Gogh!
Cranbury Public Library
Friday, Apr. 26, 6:30 pm

At one point, Vincent van Gogh wrote to his brother that since he had no children, he viewed his paintings as his progeny. A painter and pastor, van Gogh produced more than 2,000 “brilliant children.” In this session, dozens of his works of art, with a focus on pieces at the Metropolitan   Museum of Art, will be  explored. An overview of his life experiences and how it influenced his art will lead to a lively discussion, which will include talking about the differences  between experiencing original artwork and reproductions.

Presenter Michael Norris, Ph.D., has given lectures for more than twenty years, especially in classical and medieval art, the areas of his expertise. Based in Teaneck, New Jersey, Mike delivers PowerPoint lectures to libraries, schools, retirement communities, and clubs, many geared especially for New Jersey  audiences. 

This program is funded by the NJ Council for the Humanities.
