Vincent was here in Nuenen

It was in Nuenen, near Eindhoven, that Vincent van Gogh painted his masterpiece The Potato Eaters. There are many places here that remind us of his stay. From April 20, Karin Borghouts is showing her photo exhibition Vincent was here in the Van Gogh Village Museum. This brand new museum, opposite the vicarage, offers much more and is also an ideal starting point for a Van Gogh cycle or walking tour.

Atlas Van Gogh in Brabant

Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) spent half his life in Brabant, in the Netherlands. Much of his work is from this region. The book Atlas Van Gogh in Brabant brings these well-known and lesser-known places into the limelight. This book combines old maps, historical images, works by Van Gogh and new photographs by Karin Borghouts with facts about the monuments and background of Vincent van Gogh's life in 19th century Brabant. The book was compiled and written in Dutch by Ron Dirven (Vincent van Gogh Huis Zundert) and Helewise Berger (Het Noordbrabants Museum). Karin Borghouts was commissioned by Van Gogh Brabant to photograph the 46 Van Gogh monuments. This was in response to her own photographic project Vincent was here from which a book was also published (NL, FR, E).
