The Van Gogh Museum introduces the man behind the art


Amsterdam’s acclaimed Van Gogh Museum proudly presents Meet Vincent van Gogh: the official, multidisciplinary experience that introduces people around the globe to the intriguing world of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890). The innovative, all-encompassing experience illuminates the unique story of Vincent’s fascinating life.


Global access to Vincent van Gogh

The vulnerable nature of the museum collection and limited transport options mean that many paintings rarely leave the museum and that some never even travel. The Van Gogh Museum is constantly looking for new, modern approaches to introducing as many people as possible to the life and works of Vincent van Gogh, and the Meet Vincent van Gogh experience dovetails seamlessly with this mission. Innovative audiovisual techniques now allow people all around the world to journey through Vincent van Gogh’s extraordinary life.


The Van Gogh Museum

The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam houses the world’s largest collection of works by Vincent van Gogh, featuring 200 paintings, 500 drawings and more than 800 letters. The museum attracts in excess of 1.8 million visitors every year, from all corners of the globe. Alongside showcasing his fascinating works, the Van Gogh Museum displays his oeuvre in relation to the art of his contemporaries, providing an art-historical background against which his art can be better understood. The core of the astounding collection originally came from the artist’s family and is now on permanent loan to the museum from the Vincent van Gogh Foundation. The family remains actively involved through the Foundation, and V. Willem van Gogh directly related to Vincent acts as Advisor to the Board of the Van Gogh Museum.
