Van Go Art au Musée d'Orsay

Hi everyone.

A few days before the opening of a van Gogh exhibition in Paris in 1947, gallery owner Pierre Loeb suggested that Antonin Artaud write about the painter. Challenging the thesis of alienation, Artaud was determined to show how van Gogh’s exceptional lucidity made lesser minds uncomfortable. 

The catalogue for this show is a good read and visually focused . 

My question is: What do Michel Jackson and Vincent  have in common?

oooo.... Have I got you thinking? Yummy.

I’m thinking it would be best for all if we met just outside the ticket counter from 19h00 to 19h30, in around 19h30, giving us 2 hours + or so to walk about. No rush. The place is open till 21h45. 

Jo has given us Café de l’Empire (17 rue du Bac) to meet for drinks and food after our visit.

Keep my mobile number close and contact me if you get lost… I’ll try to keep everyone around.

Hope to you there.

Peace.

Douglas.

    Michael Jackson/Van Gogh commonality - It probably has something to do with moon walking, no?

    What do Michel Jackson and Vincent have in common? They both happily disfigured their own faces.

    I will be working on Thursday and am not sure when I finish... so I free my spot to the next on the list.
    I will keep my eye, though, and if I'm done early enough, I will check if any free spot is available...
