Van Gogh exhibit at Denver Art Museum ends with 40-hour marathon

DENVER - An exclusive exhibit of the works of Vincent Van Gogh has closed in Denver after a three month run that ended with a 40-hour marathon.

"Becoming Van Gogh" closed Sunday after staying open around the clock for its final two days. All tickets were sold out.

The Denver Post reported that the crowd included both club kids and parents pushing strollers.

The show told the story of how van Gogh developed his signature style. The Denver Art Museum assembled the show using more than 70 van Gogh works from dozens of museums and collections around the world. The exhibit also included artists who influenced him and from fellow postimpressionists.

 It took about seven years to assemble all of the works, some of which were loaned by the Tate Gallery in London and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
