Vincent van Gogh, The Yellow House (The Street), 1888. Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam (Vincent van Gogh Stichting).
Wassily Kandinsky, Murnau Street with Women, 1908. Private collection, Courtesy Neue Galerie New York.
In keeping with the recent trend for exhibits that link an artist and a related movement or area of art historical relevance (“Picasso and American Art @The Whitney”, Soutine and Modern Art @ Cheim & Reid last spring), along comes another winner: Van Gogh and Expressionism scheduled to come to the Neue Gallery in NYC this spring. I have been amazed at the sort of neon colors and nineteen-sixties flavor acheived by Kandinsky in the first decade of the last century!
