The Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles presents Hot Sun, Late Sun. Untamed Modernism, a major thematic exhibition featuring exceptional loans of works by Vincent van Gogh and Pablo Picasso, from 21 April to 28 October 2018.

ADOLPHE MONTICELLI, VINCENT VAN GOGH, PABLO PICASSO, 
SIGMAR POLKE, GIORGIO DE CHIRICO, GERMAINE RICHIER,
ALEXANDER CALDER, JOAN MITCHELL, ETEL ADNAN & SUN RA.

This thematic exhibition pursues a free exploration of the sun, understood as a metaphor interrogating the artists’ respective relationships on the one hand with the Mediterranean region, home to experimentation, and on the other with Modernism and Postmodernism. It brings together outstanding loans of paintings by Vincent van Gogh and late paintings by Pablo Picasso and Alexander Calder, as well as works by Etel Adnan, Giorgio de Chirico, Adolphe Monticelli, Sigmar Polke, Germaine Richier, Joan Mitchell and the musician Sun Ra.

Hot Sun, Late Sun. Modernism Untamed thereby seeks to identify a family of artists whose origins go back to Monticelli – a member, alongside Jean-François Millet, of the pantheon of painters who inspired Vincent van Gogh.

The “hot sun” of the title symbolises a Modernism at its blazing zenith, embodied in the work of Van Gogh as from February 1888, when the Dutch artist discovered Provence.
The “late sun”, belonging to the end of the day, is found in the works of Picasso’s final years, where its last rays naturally correspond to the artist’s advanced age.
