When was it? When I went to the museum. Ah, it was before 2014 ended. I had a visitor from England that day. But it was nice, really nice, though the collection wasn’t what I expected to be. His most famous works weren’t there.
But this is what I found on the internet. This guy was good, really good:
I’m not the type that likes museums but this day was succesfull, and I like art. The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam…
Vincent Willem van Gogh (30 March 1853 – 29 July 1890) was a Dutch Post-Impressionist painter who is among the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art. In just over a decade he created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings, most of them in the last two years of his life. They include landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portraits, and are characterised by bold colours and dramatic, impulsive and expressive brushwork that contributed to the foundations of modern art. His suicide at 37 followed years of mental illness and poverty.
