Great Lakes and Upper South in the News: "New van Gogh exhibit in Cincinnati" from the Chicago Tribune

The Cincinnati Art Museum is hosting an exclusive exhibit revolving around Vincent van Gogh's woodland landscapes.

"Van Gogh: Into the Undergrowth" brings together, for the first time, a collection of nine paintings by the Dutch artist and several additional relevant pieces by his contemporaries, like Claude Monet and Paul Gauguin. Twenty of the works are on loan from collections around the world, including the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

 Running from Oct. 15 to Jan. 8, 2017, the exhibit is said to trace the evolution of van Gogh's odes to nature during a time of increasing industrialization and urbanization.

A key piece, van Gogh's "Undergrowth With Two Figures," has belonged to the museum since 1967.
