The 125th anniversary of Vincent van Gogh’s death brings a flurry of exhibitions. This month, the Beaux-Arts Museum in Mons, Belgium—a 2015 European Capital of Culture—explores the artist’s formative years (January 25–May 17). In May, Oslo’s Munch Museum (May 7–September 6) finds parallels between the Dutch and Norwegian masters. And van Gogh is the inspiration for further events in Amsterdam, Paris, and Arles, France.
