As Van Gogh fan (browse the Art category on this blog for more info) I plan to visit the exhibitions in The Netherlands;
Noordbrabants Museum, his homeland in Brabant region. This is the place where Van Gogh painted The Potato Eaters.
Kröller -Müller Museum in park Hoge Veluwe close to my place. This museum has second largest Van Gogh collection in the world. It is originally a private collection of Helene Kröller – Müller.
Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam. I am curious about Edvard Munch meets Van Gogh exhibition 25 September 2015 – 17 January 2016. Both Munch and Van Gogh’s works are emotionally charged based on their mental state of mind. This would be interesting.
It goes without saying this commemoration is Van Gogh’s merit. His works have influenced so many people while when he made them, he just expressed his mind.
I put my heart and my soul into my work, and have lost my mind in the process.
