It was while he was in the Walloon coal-mining area of the Borinage, from December 1878 to October 1880, that Vincent van Gogh abandoned his career as a preacher and decided to become an artist. This exhibition takes you through this crucial period, during which the artistic ideas he developed largely set the course for his work. With some seventy paintings, drawings and letters by and from Van Gogh, the exhibition – which also includes over twenty works that the artist copied or that influenced his work – beautifully portrays his various sources of inspiration. Until 17 May.
