His approach followed the trend set by the Impressionists of "translating" visual light effects with various color combinations. This exhibition presents new insight into Van Gogh's depictions of night landscapes, interior scenes, and the effects of both gaslight and natural light on their surroundings.<br/><br/> Lecturer Jennifer Field (MA, Hunter College; PhD student, Institute of Fine Arts, New York University) is a curatorial assistant in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at MoMA.<br/><br/> NOTE: The beginning of the program is not included in this recording.<br/><br/> This event is held in conjunction with the exhibition <i>Van Gogh and the Colors of the Night.</i> </p> </div> <form action="./" class="share"> <a href="#" class="selected" rel="permalink"><small>Permalink</small></a> <a href="#" rel="embed"><small>Embed</small></a> <a href="/momaorg/shared/audio_file/audio_file/456/BBLL_VanGogh_101608_excerpt.mp3" class="download"><small>Download MP3</small></a> <label id="embed-toggle"> <input type="checkbox" name="embed_toggle" /> <small>Old embed code</small> </label> <br class="clear" /> <input type="text" name="permalink" value="http://www.moma.org/explore/multimedia/audios/84/455" id="permalink" class="selected copy-paste" /> <input type="text" name="embed" value="&lt;iframe src=&quot;//www.moma.org/audios/embed/84/455&quot; width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;360&quot; frameborder=&quot;0&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;allowfullscreen&quot;&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt; " data-embed="&lt;object width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;360&quot;&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;movie&quot; value=&quot;/embed/audios/embed/84/455&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;allowFullScreen&quot; value=&quot;true&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;wMode&quot; value=&quot;opaque&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;param name=&quot;allowscriptaccess&quot; value=&quot;always&quot;&gt;&lt;/param&gt;&lt;embed src=&quot;/embed/audios/embed/84/455&quot; type=&quot;application/x-shockwave-flash&quot; allowscriptaccess=&quot;always&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;true&quot; wmode=&quot;opaque&quot; width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;360&quot;&gt;&lt;/embed&gt;&lt;/object&gt;" data-iframe="&lt;iframe src=&quot;//www.moma.org/audios/embed/84/455&quot; width=&quot;480&quot; height=&quot;360&quot; frameborder=&quot;0&quot; allowfullscreen=&quot;allowfullscreen&quot;&gt;&lt;/iframe&gt; " id="embed" class="copy-paste" /> </form> </div> <br class="clear" /> </div> <!--googleoff: index--> <div id="playlist" class="JS_MediaPlaylist"> <div class="playlist-tabs"> <a href="#playlist" class="first selected" rel="tab-playlist">Playlist</a> <a href="#related" rel="tab-related">Related Content</a> <br class="clear" /> </div> <div id="tab-playlist" class="tab selected"> <h3>Special Exhibitions Programs: <i>Van Gogh and the Colors of the Night</i> (2)</h3> <div class="bottom-border"></div> <ol class="scrollable" > <li> <a href="/explore/multimedia/audios/84/455" class="media playing" rel="/explore/multimedia/audios/full/84/455.xml?language="> <span class="image"> <img alt="Vincent van Gogh. &lt;i&gt;The Starry Night.&lt;/i&gt; 1889.
