This major new exhibition at the Tate will reveal how Vincent Van Gogh was inspired by British art, and how he then went on to inspire British artists in turn.

Van Gogh lived in England for several years as a young man, and was especially inspired by the art of Constable and Millais — both of which are featured in the exhibition. The painters that he then went on to inspire include the likes of Francis Bacon and David Bomberg, whom he helped to set on the road to modern art.

The forty paintings by Van Gogh will represent the largest collection of his works in the UK for nearly a decade, and will include many famous works on loan from around the world such as Shoes, Starry Night on the Rhone, L'Arlesienne, and two of the works he created while staying at the Saint-Paul Asylum: At Eternity's Gate and Prisoners Exercising.
