GUARANTEED TO LEAVE YOU A-‘GOGH’!
Time to lift off the dust sheets, unpack the easel and get those bristles back in your brush. Luxury five-star boutique property, St James’s Hotel & Club in Mayfair has teamed up with local private art gallery, Eykyn Maclean, offering guests a perfectly formed package including an exclusive Q-jump pass to the front, for a unique (and free!) viewing of ‘Van Gogh in Paris’ – the latest exhibition to grace the art world, available from 26th September to 29th November 2013.
Showcasing some of Van Gogh’s finest portraits and paintings during his time living and working in Paris, from 1886 to 1888, the exhibition shows how Van Gogh’s two years in Paris were critical to his career and success. During this period he explored new techniques and expressive bright colours – leading to the style for which he is best known today. Surrounding these are carefully researched and selected works of art by artists that Van Gogh associated with during these years – including Monet, Pissarro, Toulouse-Lautrec, and Gauguin.
For a finishing touch, and in memory of the man himself, guests can unwind at William’s Bar & Bistro of St James’s Hotel & Club and soak up a bespoke Van Gogh inspired cocktail. A punchy potion of Pernod Absinthe (known to have inspired many French painters), Brecon Five vodka, Limoncello, gum syrup and fresh lime and lemon juice, this is sure to get your artistic flare racing!
The ‘Van Gogh’ package starts from £595, includes an overnight stay in a Junior suite, plus:
• Full English Breakfast
• Tour of the ‘Van Gogh in Paris’ exhibition
• Catalogue of the exhibition
• A complimentary Van Gogh-inspired cocktail
Demand is high and space is limited. Book now to avoid disappointment!
