The Van Gogh Exhibit is sold out, sort of

I heard through the grapevine, the Becoming Van Gogh exhibit has already made more money for the museum than any show this year, even more than the outstanding Yves Saint Laurent. If you’re up for midnight madness at the museum and still no ticket to “Becoming Van Gogh” the museum is trying to accommodate all art lovers. You might want to go ahead and try for a ticket, it could be fun to visit the museum at 2 a.m. The museum will open at 8 a.m. Jan. 19 and close 40 hours later at midnight on Jan. 20.

Van Gogh wrote,  “I painted two pictures of myself lately, one of which has rather the true character … I always think photographs abominable, and I don’t like to have them around, particularly not those of persons I know and love…. photographic portraits wither much sooner than we ourselves do, whereas the painted portrait is a thing which is felt, done with love or respect for the human being that is portrayed.”
(Letter to Wilhelmina van Gogh, 19 September 1889)

    Actually, it has been completely sold out for several days, including all the overnight hours on the 19th/20th.
