This exhibition takes place on the 160th anniversary of the artist’s birth and the 40th year of the Van Gogh Museum's location at Amsterdam's Museumplein museum complex. It is also the opening exhibition to mark the re-opening of the restored Van Gogh Museum.
The more than 200 works on show document the working practice and creative processes of the great artist. The exhibition is the culmination of seven years of research into Van Gogh's development as an artist, and comprises paintings, works on paper, sketchbooks and letters, displayed in chronological order.
Aside from the museum's own collection, the exhibition includes Van Gogh works on loan from international art institutions as well as paintings by peers Monet, Gaugain, Seurat and Bernard.
Many of Van Gogh's personal belongings are also on show, including his only surviving palette, from the Musée d’Orsay in Paris.
