Over Spring 2021 Jo Volley created a timeline charting the specific colours used by Van Gogh across his lifetime. Materials, collated through a close reading of the artist's letters and associated texts, were applied directly to the walls of the Van Gogh House. To accompany the timeline Volley has created this set of editions.
