Van Gogh draughtsman exhibit book
I have placed my copy of the Van Gogh draughtsman The Masterpieces exhibit book at the reference desk in case you want to look at it. It could also be used by students who have an assignment to write about something that they have viewed at a museum. The exhibit of his drawings recently opened at the Metropolitan Museum; I saw the exhibit when I was visiting my Dutch friends. I found the exhibit so interesting that I bought the book and I plan to go again now that it is just a subway ride away. Many of the drawings are rarely exhibited because of their fragile condition. I hope that here they have a video presentation in which the pages of his original small sketch book are shown.
