Van Gogh's Cypresses


Visitors to the city this summer will get a chance to view Van Gogh's Cypresses, the first exhibition ever to focus on the artist's works featuring cypress trees, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Over 40 works have been assembled, each highlighting the Dutch master's fascination with the conifers in the south of France over a two-year period (1888-1890) near the end of his life.

Iconic works such as Wheat Field with Cypresses and The Starry Night take center stage in this collection, with paintings encompassing his first sighting of the trees in Arles all the way through his his later interpretations from an asylum in Saint-Rémy.

The exhibition will be on display at The Met through August 27. Tickets are $30 for adults, $22 for seniors, $17 for students. Kids under 12 are free.

Museum hours are 10 am to 5 pm, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday. 10 am to 9 pm on Friday and Saturday. Closed on Wednesday.
