Vincent van Gogh was never able to see the modern skyline of Rotterdam. Yet his influence clearly visible in a series of recent paintings of the port city:
The Costa Rican artist Erika Stanley portrayed striking Rotterdam buildings in the style of Van Gogh. She made colorful paintings of the Erasmus Bridge, the Market Hall, Central Station and the world-famous cube houses.
The artist loves both Rotterdam and the work of the famous painter Vincent van Gogh. That love comes together in the series “If Van Gogh…”.
The paintings are on display from October 29 in Thyade Art gallery in Rotterdam.
