Atlas Van Gogh in Brabant

Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) spent half his life in Brabant, in the Netherlands. He was born and raised in Zundert, attended a boarding school in Zevenbergen and went to secondary school in Tilburg. Brabant was an important home for the young Vincent, and he often referred to it in his paintings. In the village of Etten he drew extensively as a young artist, and in Nuenen he developed as a painter. A considerable part of his work was done in this region.

Various places bear traces of his childhood, his family, his loves and his friends. The drawings and paintings he made there, are closely linked to the Brabant landscape. Farmers and their houses were his models. He painted nature, windmills and churches in his surroundings. 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 (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).
