  • 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 1,100 works on paper during his career. He also left 902 letters for posterity. The photographer Karin Borghouts followed in Vincent’s footsteps, from his Dutch birthplace in Zundert to Auvers-sur-Oise in France where he took his own life. No less than thirteen locations, including Nuenen, Drenthe, Paris, Arles and Saint-Rémy-de-Provence are portrayed in magnificent images. She has also reconstructed 25 of his still lifes and photographed them. Come and enjoy the wondrous places and themes that were Vincent’s, and view them afresh through Karin Borghouts’ lens.
