Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Vincent van Gogh: His Life in Art

Introduced by Margarita De La Vega-Hurtado, MFAH film committee member

Filmed on location in Provence, France, and in Holland, Robert Altman’s biopic Vincent & Theo concentrates on the relationship between artist Vincent van Gogh (Tim Roth) and Van Gogh’s beloved brother, Theo (Paul Rhys). Based on letters written by the painter to his art-dealer brother, this beautiful story of love and compassion captures the artist’s creativity and state of mind as Theo—who recognizes his brother’s genius—cannot convince an indifferent public to buy Vincent van Gogh’s work.
