Van Gogh Appears in Marseille

Coinciding with the Musée des Beaux Arts joint exhibition, from Van Gogh to Bonnard, sculptor Bruno Catalano has created Le Grand Van Gogh, two identical sculptures set along the water in Marseille, France, walking. The sculptures appear to be materializing, or fading away. Vincent’s face is remarkable. His eyes are heavy and sad.

Catalano seemed to age Van Gogh who was just 37 when he died. Maybe he’s simply searching for answers. Did you know that he died from a gunshot wound? It was believed to be self-inflicted, an easy assumption given his bouts of mental illness, but they never found the gun. Intrigued?
