From 9 July – 26 September 2010 – Van Gogh Museum
A chronological overview of the French artist Jacques Villon (1875 – 1963) will be on display in the Van Gogh Museum (Rietveld building, print room). The presentation ‘Welcoming the Rijksmuseum: Jacques Villon’ includes over 50 works from the Rijksmuseum’s collection. This marks the fifth time that the Van Gogh Museum is hosting the Rijksmuseum while the main building undergoes renovation. The presentation features a range of graphic techniques that Jacques Villon used, such as etching, aquatint, drypoint engraving and lithography. The presentation also showcases the prints inspired by drawings and paintings by contemporary artists such as Kees van Dongen, Pierre Bonnard and Vincent van Gogh that Jacques Villon produced for Parisian art dealer Bernheim Jeune between 1922 and 1930. The presentation is built around the private collection of Mr and Mrs Van der Vossen – Delbrück, which the couple bequeathed to the Rijksmuseum’s Print Room.
