‘Van Gogh And Nature’ Opens At The Clark

Amy Krzanik reports from Williamstown. On the main floor, the sublimity of the Clark Art Institute’s reflecting pools and, beyond them, the Berkshires’ rolling hills enticed guests onto the Fernández Terrace to sip cocktails, chat with friends and enjoy the views. Downstairs, scenes of Holland, Provence, Arles, Paris, Auvers and Saint-Rémy, as seen through the eyes of one of the most famous painters to have ever lived, took center stage as the Museum opened Van Gogh and Nature on June 13. The exhibit features nearly 50 paintings and drawings from 30 museums and private collections around the world. The New York Times calls the show a “low-key big deal,” and guests seemed smitten with the array of works chosen. The Clark’s own Café Seven catered, with French fare like croque-monsieur and frozen raspberry mille-feuille or Napoleons getting top billing and making clear why the Wall Street Journal namechecked the café in a recent restaurant roundup. Van Gogh and Nature will be on display at the Clark until September 13. Above, Eric and Stacy Cochran pose with the Clark’s director, Michael Conforti.
