Vincent was here in Nuenen

On 16 May, Queen Máxima will officially open the brand new Van Gogh Village Museum in Nuenen. Karin Borghouts' photographic exhibition Vincent was herewill be the first temporary exhibition. The museum, located opposite Vincent's father's vicarage, has much more to offer and is also an ideal starting point for a Van Gogh cycle or walking tour. It was in Nuenen that Vincent van Gogh painted his masterpiece, The Potato Eaters. There are still many reminders of his stay.

Karin Borghouts followed Vincent van Gogh from Zundert to Auvers-sur-Oise, reconstructing and photographing many of his still lifes. She was inspired by the work of Van Gogh and his teachers, 19th century contemporaries and old masters. The photo book Vincent Was Here is published by Gallery Ronny Van de Velde.

5-star hotel in Amsterdam

Pillows Grand Boutique Hotel Maurits at the Park is a 5-star hotel located on the Mauritskade in Amsterdam. The building, originally designed by Bernard Springer, was built in 1909 as a dissecting laboratory for the University of Amsterdam. The building also housed the Vrolik anatomical museum. The building has been converted, renovated and rebuilt by Office Winhov Architects and has been nominated by BNA as the best building of 2022. Karin photographed the hotel on behalf of interior designers Studio Linse.
