About the Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam
The Van Gogh Museum contains paintings, drawings, and letters. One main perk of the Van Gogh Museum is getting to know Van Gogh’s life. You will have the opportunity to see letters which Van Gogh wrote to his brother and his contemporaries, so that you may learn more about his different relationships with his family and other artists. The museum shows Van Gogh’s artistic development from his early years until his death. So you will be able to learn a lot about the “post impressionism,” a period of art shaped largely by Van Gogh himself. Like the pictures in the Van Gogh Museum show, the artist worked with vivacious, bizarre, and random colours; geometric patterns; and alteration of forms to give them more expression. The museum also offers guided tours, a special evening program on Friday nights, and workshops.
