“Side by Side” Van Gogh’s Sunflowers, National Gallery, London, until 27th April
The lyric “side by side” is a literal description of what you will encounter when you visit this “must see” exhibition of these two Sunflower paintings. They have an emotional resonance which you need to experience first hand.
Much has and will be written about them and I will not add anything here; the storyboards in the gallery tell you all you need to know and I will not spoil it.
A final thought! What if they were for sale and you could afford one of them? Which would you choose? Over to you!
