In the Footsteps of Van Gogh: Amsterdam, Paris, and Provence

During a brief artistic career passed largely in isolation and obscurity, Vincent van Gogh (1853-90) produced the brilliantly colorful and intensely expressive paintings that are now among the most widely known and admired of all works of art. His biography abounds with surprises and poignant ironies. Participants in this project will explore Van Gogh’s life, art, and cultural milieu in depth, learning about his failed pursuit of careers in ministry and missionary work, his solitary development of his artistic skills, his interests in Japanese prints, French literature, and German music, and his friendships with other avant-garde artists. After a week of on-campus preparation devoted to study of the artistic trends of the time, reading of Van Gogh’s letters, analysis of his paintings, and the screening of biographies on film, participants will embark on two-and-a-half of weeks of travel, divided between Amsterdam, Paris, and Provence in the south of France. This itinerary will encompass visits to cities, towns, and neighborhoods where Van Gogh lived and worked, landscape settings where he walked and painted, museums holding the largest collections of Van Gogh’s work, the monastery-asylum where he was voluntarily confined for a year and where he painted The Starry Night, and the graves of the artist and his brother, whose constant financial and emotional support made Vincent’s art possible.

Peter L. Schmunk has taught art history at Wofford College for fifteen years and is coordinator of the art history major program. He regularly teaches courses on medieval, baroque, and nineteenth-century art, and has twice taught an upper division course for art history majors on Van Gogh. His principal research interest is in the influence of music on nineteenth-century painters. He has given a number of presentations at scholarly conferences and published two articles on Van Gogh’s own interest in music as a model for the intensely colorful and expressive paintings produced at the height of his artistic career. Over the past decade, Professor Schmunk has organized nine interim trips to European countries, including France, Germany, Greece, and Italy.

G.R. Davis joined the Biology Department in 1993 where he regularly teaches human physiology, neurobiology, and other courses particularly relevant to students intending to pursue health professions. He has traveled with student groups to Trinidad & Tobago and Venezuela (2000) and twice to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands (1996 and 1999). In 2000, he and Dr. Schmunk organized an interim entitled Sicily: Cultural Crossroads of the Meditteranean. Of late, he is pursuing an interest in art history and is reading extensively on the life and art of Van Gogh.

What to Pack?



Personal items:

Practical suggestions:

There are several Travel Precautions which have been made more relevant after 9/11.
1) Leave a copy of the picture page of your passport at home, one in your luggage, and one to the travel interim faculty.
2) Label luggage inside and out.
3) Don't wear any clothing that easily identifies you as an American (Wofford sweatshirts, baseball caps, etc)
4) Don't hang out in large groups. You can be easily identified as Americans.
5) Avoid icons of American culture such as McDonalds, the Hard Rock Café; they can become easy targets.
6) Airlines are limiting passengers to one carry-on and are searching this item for any sharp objects, etc.
7) Don't pack anything unusual which might look suspicious when going through a scanner (a twelve-pack of bottled water looks suspicious!!) Airports have been known to destroy suspicious looking luggage.
8) If your luggage DOES get lost report it immediately and don't leave the city of arrival until you have solved the missing luggage problem. Retrieving it later will be practically impossible.
9) Pack your carry-on item as if the airline might misplace your checked luggage. Pack extra underwear, a shirt, important medication, etc.
10) You are limited to two carry-on bags of no more that 70 pounds each. There are size restrictions, and we will jest with you if you pack excessively. Remember, you'll be lugging this through airports and on trains, so travel light.

What you must know before departure!

Prior to departure, one should possess at least some basic knowledge of a destination. Of course one should be familiar with exchange rates for currency, the language, time differences, local customs and courtesies, the "lay of the land," and the significance of each point of interest. A list of questions will be posted here to assist students as they prepare for departure. Here are some questions to get you started:

Class meetings Monday through Thursday in Daniel 101 beginning at 9am. Topics for class meetings are listed elsewhere. On Tuesday afternoon, we will watch a movie about the life of Van Gogh. On Wednesday afternoon, students will schedule appointments to meet with the instructors to discuss the topics of their intended papers. On Thursday afternoon, an exam is scheduled based on the assigned readings and class material. Friday morning is free to prepare for departure from campus.
