About

Join Gallery Educator Bethan Durie as she explores the rhythmic brushwork and rich colour palette used to construct the painting Van Gogh regarded as one of his best summer landscapes. 

While exploring Van Gogh’s process, Bethan will introduce other examples of landscapes in the National Gallery Collection – from  Gauguin to Constable – examining the influence they may have had on Van Gogh. 

After the talk, Bethan will be able to answer any questions you may have in a live Q&A.
