Step into Van Gogh’s world. Explore the world’s largest collection of works by Vincent van Gogh at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
The Permanent Collection:
Myths and context:
The museum focuses on the complete story: the artist, the context, his personal ambitions, his emotions, the myths and his influence until this very day.
Inspiring the world:
The huge impact of Van Gogh on the first generation of artists after his death will be shown by expressive works such as those by Maurice de Vlaminck and Kees van Dongen from the museum’s own collection.
A video installation in the hall shows how, after his death, Van Gogh has become the important (pop)cultural icon that he is today.
Van Gogh’s hope that his work might go on inspiring the world after his death has come true: until this very day he reaches out to millions of admirers.
Marcel Schmalgemeijer is responsible for the design of the presentation, together with graphical designer Mariëlle Tolenaar.
