"Over the course of his life, Van Gogh lived in thirty-seven different homes. In 1888 the artist moved into the only place he considered his own: his beloved "Yellow House" in Arles, France. His second-floor bedroom became a sanctuary, and it inspired him to record it in paint. Van Gogh so prized The Bedroom, which he deemed one of his best canvases, that he created two similar but distinct versions of it almost a year later, after being forced to leave his Yellow House following a nervous breakdown. In this reunion at the Art Institute of Chicago, the public has the extraordinary opportunity to see these three paintings hanging together as they did in Van Gogh's asylum studio. Presented only in Chicago, Van Gogh's Bedrooms is a momentous occasion that, along with this accompanying catalogue, sheds new light on these iconic compositions and the circumstances of their making. The exhibition is groundbreaking also because it is the first to consider the theme of home in the artist's work"-- Provided by publisher.
