‘As you can see, I am immersing myself in color — I’ve held back from that until now; and I don’t regret it.’

Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) is one of the most famous Dutch painter of all time. As an artist, he had a short career: just 10 years, from 1880 until his death in 1890. As a result of his great passion, in those ten years Van Gogh produced an impressive body of work. With a collection encompassing more than 200 paintings, almost 500 drawings and over 700 letters, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam brings together the largest collection of works by Vincent van Gogh in the world.  As a painter, he was largely self-taught. With the help of textbooks, a few lessons at the art academies of Brussels and Antwerp, constant visits to museums, and advice from artist friends, he taught himself the craft and developed his own highly distinctive style of painting, made up of expressive brushstrokes and vivid colours. His style has since inspired and influenced many subsequent generations of artists.

‘If one truly loves nature one finds beauty everywhere.’
Vincent van Gogh to his brother Theo, 30 April 1874

The Van Gogh Museum is grateful that you are directly contributing to the preservation of Van Gogh’s legacy and art collection so that it may continue to inspire and be shared with future generations.

Thanks to Theo, Vincent had the means to develop as an artist and follow his dream.

Despite the support that Vincent received from his younger brother, he still had to work very hard. He persevered and never stopped believing in himself, despite countless setbacks. But without his brother’s help, he would never have succeeded.

This is a beautiful example of what support and trust can do for a person.

With this generous thought in mind we also want to give something back to the work Vincent van Gogh shared with us.

We want to make sure his art, his thoughts and his inspiration stay alive and therefore we financially support the preservation of Van Gogh’s legacy for future generations.
