The Real Van Gogh: The Artist and his Letters
Royal Academy of Arts, London, until 13 April
This wonderful exhibition brings to London paintings never or rarely seen here alongside Van Gogh's more familiar images and a series of sketches and drawings. Alongside the works of art are 35 letters which give insights into Van Gogh's ideas and methods, his choice of colours and why, for example, he wanted to bend a peasant to the contours of the field he was working.
Theatre 503, London, until 20 February
