Vincent was here in Nuenen


  • Mand Aardappelen 9297
  • It was in Nuenen, near Eindhoven, the Netherlands, that Vincent van Gogh painted his masterpiece, The Potato Eaters. There are many places here that remind us of his stay.
    From 20 April, Karin Borghouts is showing her photographic exhibition Vincent was here in the Van Gogh Village Museum Nuenen. This brand new museum offers much more and is also an ideal starting point for a Van Gogh cycle or walking tour.
    This is the sixth Vincent was here exhibition. It has started in 2019 at Het Noordbrabants Museum, the Netherlands and in 2022 it was on view at the Citadel of Namur Belgium. The exhibition will be different each time.

    Vincent van Gogh's footsteps were followed across Europe by photographer Karin Borghouts. She also reconstructed and photographed more than 30 of his still lifes. Vincent was here is a visual study that explores the boundary between painting and photography. The exhibition focuses on the locations in Nuenen, supplemented by other places Vincent visited and images of his paintings. Karin Borghouts also recently photographed all 46 Van Gogh monuments for the new book Atlas Van Gogh in Brabant.
