Vincent van Gogh (1853 — 1890) moved from place to place from quite early on in his life, never staying in one spot for very long. In the Borinage he decided to devote himself to art, and made some 900 paintings and 1100 works on paper during his career. He also left 902 letters for posterity. No less than thirteen locations where he lived, including Nuenen, Drenthe, Paris, Arles and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, are portrayed in magnificent images. A book and an exhibition are available.
Come and enjoy the wondrous places and themes that were Vincent’s, and view them afresh through Karin Borghouts’ lens.
