Kunstmuseum, Basel: Vincent van Gogh, Between Earth and Heaven, Landscape Paintings

In 2009, the Kunstmuseum Basel staged the first showing worldwide of the landscape paintings by Vincent van Gogh. Seventy paintings –world-famous key works as well as paintings barely seen previously by the general public – gave a new insight into van Gogh’s oeuvre. In addition, forty works by contemporaries from Kunstmuseum Basel’s world-famous collection placed van Gogh’s groundbreaking approach to nature in a broader context.
