Dallas, Texas -- McKool Smith is a long time supporter of the Dallas Museum of Art and a major sponsor of Van Gogh’s Sheaves of Wheat, an in-depth study of the masterworks of this great artist who influenced countless contemporaries and future artists. Organized by the Dallas Museum of Art and featuring Vincent van Gogh’s masterwork Sheaves of Wheat (1890) from the Museum’s own collection, this exhibition explores the artist’s fascination with the motif in his paintings, drawings, and personal letters. The exhibition, with the largest collection of Van Gogh works ever displayed in the Southwest, will run through January 7, 2007.
“We’re very pleased to sponsor this important event, and will continue to support the arts and cultural community that is so vital to our city” says Mike McKool, founding partner at McKool Smith.
The exhibition includes the work of other 19th-century artists, including individuals who Van Gogh admired and emulated, as well as artists of his generation who shared his enthusiasm and fascination with the theme. Works by Émile Bernard, Jules Breton, Charles-François Daubigny, Julien Dupré, Paul Gauguin, Léon Augustin L’Hermitte, Jean-François Millet, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, and Félix Edouard Vallotton illustrate a range of different approaches and reveal the larger social and political issues of the time.
