The Cleveland Museum of Art and The Phillips Collection have joined together to develop a ground-breaking exhibition that will present new insights into the art of Vincent van Gogh through a study of his “repetitions,” a term the artist used to describe a distinctive genre of works in his oeuvre.

Born into the legendary family of gypsy violinists descended from János Bihari, “King of Gypsy Violinists,” violinist Roby Lakatos is not only a scorching virtuoso but a musician of extraordinary stylistic versatility. Equally comfortable performing classical music as he is playing jazz and in his own Hungarian folk idiom, Lakatos is the rare musician who defies definition. He is referred to as a gypsy violinist or “devil’s fiddler,” a classical virtuoso, a jazz improviser, a composer and arranger, and a 19th-century throwback—simultaneously.

The Cleveland Museum of Art and The Phillips Collection have joined together to develop a ground-breaking exhibition that will present new insights into the art of Vincent van Gogh through a study of his “repetitions,” a term the artist used to describe a distinctive genre of works in his oeuvre. As the first exhibition to focus specifically on pairs or groups of works by Van Gogh that feature nearly identical compositions, this project seeks to make a valuable contribution to Van Gogh scholarship and to give broad audiences a new understanding of a fascinating aspect of the artist’s work.

Treasures on Paper showcases more than seventy of the museum’s finest prints and drawings acquired throughout the institution’s history. Masterpieces such as a series of fifty fifteenth-century engravings hand-colored in gold by the Master of the E-Series Tarocchi illustrating a philosophical hierarchy of the universe, as well as a dazzling watercolor of horses fighting by the young Romantic artist Théodore Géricault, helped lay the foundations of the collection in the 1920s.
