In the midst of the shutdown of federally funded museums, the private Phillips Collection is launching the first major exhibition of Vincent van Gogh's artwork in Washington in 15 years.
Curators brought together more than 30 artworks, following van Gogh's time in the Netherlands and France. They began with van Gogh's "The Large Plane Trees" and "The Road Menders" from 1889. These are the first two versions of a composition van Gogh sought to perfect.
Another featured repetition includes his series of portraits of "The Postman Joseph Roulin" in Arles, France.
