March 16th, Van Gogh: Damned or Genius? The Mystic Journey of an Artist
Van Gogh was not crazy when he was painting. He was very talented, a best-seller writer and an avant-garde painter who wanted to create an artist community in Arles. Let’s celebrate the anniversary of his tragic death and understand the last years of his prolific life that changed the world of art history. From London to Paris, from Arles to Auvers-Sur-Oise, we will trace the artist’s journey.

Guernica is the most famous painting in the world after the Da Vinci’ Monalisa. Why this huge black and white painting is so iconic? Painted in Paris in 1937, Guernica was immediately recognised as a masterpiece.

France, 1940. Defying logic, Janot Reichenbach, a wealthy Jewish woman, decides to not flee the German-occupied country with her husband and son. Instead, she joins socialist politician and three-time Prime Minister? Léon Blum, with whom she fell madly in love when she was only sixteen but kept apart from all these years, in the free zone. Determined to stay with Blum at all costs and willing to sacrifice all she has for love, she follows him as he is moved from France to Buchenwald, where they are both imprisoned. Based on the remarkable true story.
