Perspective Frame – Becoming Van Gogh at DAM

VG-Sketchmodsm

Working from a sketch and description which Vincent Van Gogh included in a letter to his brother, I recreated his perspective frame for the Denver Art Museum’s recent epic exhibition of more than 70 paintings and drawings by the artist.  The field tool provides a unique insight into the painter’s methods and mastery of composition.  The building of the frame was coordinated with Spatial Poetics.  Since the close of this local exhibition, the frame has been requested by and been given to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
