Van Gogh: "At Eternity's Gate"


Van Gogh: "At Eternity's Gate"

Thursday, October 15, 2020 @ 5:30 pm

The Art Museum and the Princeton Garden Theatre are partnering to offer a virtual film screening of At Eternity’s Gate (2018), and a related lecture that considers the ways Van Gogh's biography has been treated on film with Caroline Harris, the Museum’s associate director of education. Academy Award nominee Julian Schnabel's film is a journey inside the world and mind of a person who, despite skepticism, ridicule, and illness, created some of the world's most beloved and stunning works of art. Vincent van Gogh is played by Academy Award nominee Willem Dafoe. Please watch the film at your leisure prior to the lecture. Available with a Showtime subscription or to rent on Google Play, YouTube, or Vudu. Join us on Zoom for the virtual lecture.
