Vincent Van Gogh - Madman or Genius **Cancelled**

About the event

**We regret this event has been cancelled** Lecture by Anthony Russell at 7.15pm. (Doors open 6.30pm)

It would seem that there has never been fascination in an artist to rival the Dutchman who simply signed his work 'Vincent'. We are all aware of the recent exhibitions and the remarkable prices realized for this humble artist's work. Most of us appreciate the beauty of his efforts but how much to we know about the man himself?

This lecture considers exactly why, despite barely selling a painting and his sudden death in poverty, no art historian today denies his genius.

There are extraordinary, little known facts to be revealed, while enjoying the remarkable range of his talent. Though seeming so extreme and exceptional, the tragic story of his loveless life is deeply moving and his humanity makes a lasting impression.

Meet at The University of Huddersfield, Room SJG/11, Spärck Jones Building, Firth Street, HD1 3DH
