  • Artful Conversations for Members: Van Gogh’s Biography Through His Self-Portraits 

    Vincent van Gogh’s 1887 Self-Portrait recently returned to the Wadsworth after joining fifteen of the artist’s self-portraits from collections around the world in a landmark exhibition at the Courtauld Gallery, London. For more than a century, these works have played a key role in our perception of the famous post-impressionist, his life, and his art. This special lunchtime presentation by Dr. Karen Serres, Curator of Paintings at the Courtauld, gives Wadsworth members the chance to look anew at this beloved painting in our collection. Virtual program. Email invitations will be sent with registration links.
