          A new look at Van Gogh, through the legacy of the largest private collector of artworks by the Dutch painter: Helene Krller-Mller (1869-1939), who, in the early 20th Century, ended up buying nearly 300 of his works, paintings and drawings included. The story unfolds of a woman wh...o, in Van Goghs spiritual torment could recognize her own, showing priceless artistic treasures and the rare, naturalistic and architectural beauty of the Krller-Mller Museum set in the vast De Hoge Weluge park, as well as visual extracts of the Milanese, Florentine, Roman and Palladian Renaissance. It tells the tormented, existential parable of a painter, seen through passages from his brother Theos letters, which set the pace of the exhibition, and it shows images of the places he lived and stayed in, from Paris to Provence. The opportunity to tell the story of this collection and of the burning passion for art that led to it, is an outstanding exhibition on Van Gogh. Amid wheat fields and clouded skies at the Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza, brings together 40 paintings and 85 drawings from the Krller-Mller Museum in Otterlo, Holland, now home to Helenes heritage. This is an exhibition that will not only tell us about Van Goghs art and his genius, but it will also allow us to understand the importance of drawing as part of his artistic technique. His seemingly instinctive, au premier coup canvases were the result of long, preparatory studies, not sketches but complete works of art in themselves, where the broken flow of lines that characterizes the style of his paintings, can already be found.
