Few artists can draw in a crowd like Vincent Van Gogh. The Dutch post-impressionist painter who found little acclaim during his own lifetime has in the years since become an icon world over.

His works today showcase not only the importance of the Post-Impressionism period, but have also won a place in the popular imagination across broader pop culture in many nations.

Now Melburnians have the chance to see Van Gogh's work up close and in-person, and do so in a first-class venue, with over 40 of his works on show. Whether a long time admirer or new fan of Van Gogh, this exhibition promises to deliver great value for money in enjoying one of the great Dutch Masters.

By some measures the location of the NGV is inauspicious. Distinct from other galleries of the world that sit in the heart of the city, the NGV sits off to the side of the Yarra river, and at a distance from the heft and bustle of most of the Melbourne CBD.

Yet, the way it showcases exhibitions is anything but inauspicious, with visitors to Melbourne sure to adore the confidence and style in which the NGV carries off this exhibition.

Van Gogh the Seasons in particular is beautifully structured to
ensure the focus is on Van Gogh's works, and offers the chance to all gallery goers - whether frequent or a first time visitor - to really enjoy all there is on offer from one of the world's greatest artists as they appear, simply and naturally; just like the seasons of the year.

Van Gogh and the Seasons: a beautiful exhibition in one of the world's great galleries.
