Van Gogh’s Participation in Exhibitions

Les XX
January 18 – February 23, 1890
Participation in Les XX was by invitation only unless you were a member. Van Gogh’s invitation was dated November 15, 1889 from Octave Maus. Van Gogh displayed Vase with Fifteen Sunflowers, Vase with Twelve Sunflowers, Ivy also known as A Corner in the Garden of Saint-Paul Hospital), Flowering Orchard (Arles), Wheat Field, Sunrise (Saint-Remy), and Red Vineyard (Mont-Majour). Van Gogh’s participation in the exhibition caused a bit of a stir when Henry de Groux announced that he did not want to display his works with Van Gogh’s. De Groux was expelled from the Les XX association, though he later apologized and was allowed to resign. The Les XX exhibition is where Van Gogh sold his only painting during his lifetime, The Red Vineyard was purchased by Anna Boch for 400 francs.

Société des Artistes Indépendants (Society of Independent Artists)
March 20 – April 27, 1890

The Society of Independent Artists was founded to sponsor regular exhibitions of contemporary art with no juries and no prizes.
