WASHINGTON — The Phillips Collection is extending its exhibition of Vincent van Gogh's artwork for an extra week in Washington.
The museum says "Van Gogh Repetitions" will remain on view through Feb. 2. The exhibit explores various versions of some of van Gogh's well-known paintings, examining how he repeated certain compositions during his career.
This is the first major exhibit of van Gogh's artwork in Washington in 15 years. It was organized with the Cleveland Museum of Art, which will host the exhibit beginning in March. It includes more than 30 paintings and works on paper, following van Gogh's career in the Netherlands and France. The paintings are rarely, if ever, shown together.
Curators say this exhibit gives visitors a chance to follow van Gogh's process and see how deliberate he was.
