People often imagine Vincent Van Gogh wildly moving his brush across a canvas, hastily creating his work. But the 19th century artist could also be methodical and controlled. Now through January 26 you can see Van Gogh Repetitions at The Phillips Collection. The first exhibit to focus on Van Gogh's practice of creating more than one version of a particular subject, the collection includes more than 30 paintings and works on paper that take a fresh look at his artistic process.
