New ESNA activities

ESNA Winter Drinks
Friday December 19, from  5 pm to 7 pm
Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam
As of November 28, the Van Gogh Museum will present a completely new installation of the permanent collection. The story of Vincent van Gogh’s development into one of the greatest artists of all times will be told throughout the galleries, not only giving a permanent position to his paintings but also to his drawings and letters. The ideas and ambitions behind his art will be the focus of the new presentation, which will also give room to Van Gogh’s artistic legacy. A temporary installation with a special loan will demonstrate his impact up to present day.

We invite you to come and see the results of this re-installation in person and to discuss the new presentation with a drink in hand.
The tour by Maite van Dijk (curator of paintings at the Van Gogh Museum) starts at 5pm. Drinks will be served in the museum café as of 6pm.
You can register until December 1, via esnaonline@hotmail.com. Please note: enrollment is obligatory as tickets are limited. You will receive a personal ticket and more details after registration.

Mission Statement
The European Society for Nineteenth-Century Art (ESNA) is a platform formed under the auspices of the Dutch Postgraduate School for Art History (Onderzoekschool Kunstgeschiedenis). ESNA was founded by a group of scholars, graduate students and museum professionals based in the Netherlands whose research focuses on European art of the long nineteenth century. ESNA’s aim is to provide a forum to promote the exchange of ideas in this field, to support and encourage graduate research, and to enhance networking opportunities for participants. ESNA seeks to contribute to, and foster debate on, nineteenth-century art through the organization of an annual symposium, workshops, excursions, the invitation of visiting speakers, and the co-ordination with other organizations and groups devoted to the study of the nineteenth century. Although originating in the Low Countries, ESNA aims to create a broad international network for the advancement of research into all aspects of nineteenth-century European art.
