Enter VanGogh’s crazy and fascinating world through his repetitions. What are repetitions, you ask? They are a series of different perspectives on the same subject, and their subtle differences offer new insights into the artist’s perception. Featuring works you’ve probably never seen before, the exhibition opens today and aims to explore Van Gogh’s methods. There is currently quite a bit of scholarly debate over exactly how he made these and why he would take the time to reproduce such paintings. Were these reasons commercial? For apprentices’ studies? Private collections? An attempt at fine-tuning his skills? Decide for yourself as you explore these compelling pieces. The exhibit opens today at the Cleveland Museum of Art, and tickets start at $20. (Trenholme) 11150 East Blvd., 216-421-7350, clevelandart.org.
