The inside story

Home to the world’s largest collection of Vincent Van Gogh’s paintings, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam transports visitors on a fascinating journey through the life of the artist and his contemporaries. The museum introduces the complete story: the artist, the context, Van Gogh’s personal ambitions, his emotions, the myths that surround him and his influence right up until this very day. The Van Gogh Museum’s collection includes world-famous paintings such as Sunflowers, Almond Blossom and The Potato Eaters. The museum also organizes three temporary exhibitions every year.

The subjects portrayed by Van Gogh are mainly self-portraits, still lifes, landscapes and in particular paintings with cypresses, grain fields and sunflowers. Tragically, Van Gogh committed suicide at the age of 37 after a life full of unhappy love stories and persistent depressive crises. The master left behind more than 840 paintings and 1000 drawings, many watercolors, lithographs and sketches on letters currently located in the Van Gogh Museum as well as in hundreds of other renowned museums and art exhibitions around the world.
