SECOND HOUR PRESENTATION On Sunday, August 30 at 11:20 AM Carol Berry will give a presentation on Van Gogh. Following the presentation Jim will drive the van to the Clark Museum in Williamstown, MA. The Clark welcomes Van Gogh and Nature, featuring nearly fifty paintings and drawings from thirty museums and private collections around the world. For Vincent van Gogh, nature was the defining subject of his art. Over the course of his short but intense working life, Van Gogh studied and depicted nature in all its forms— from the minutiae of insects and birds’ nests to the most sweeping of panoramic landscapes—creating a body of work that revolutionized the representation of the natural world at the end of the nineteenth century.
