About the Talk

Each month, members of our Adult Education team present their ongoing research on the collection to members. These talks are a great way to learn more about your favorite artists in the collection. 

Painted in the southern French city of Arles in 1889, Vincent van Gogh’s Postman has long been a visitor favorite at the Barnes. Join Barnes faculty member Kaelin Jewell to learn more about this beloved work and how the artist transformed his friend Joseph Roulin into an icon of modernism.

This talk will take place on-site in Room 2.
