For a complete programme overview visit Van Gogh museum ,Holland.com and Van Gogh Europe

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.

    1. Wow, saya jarang baca dan belajar tentang perupa-perupa dunia, dari karya yang dipajang di sini saja sudah kerasa bagus banget Mba. Sayang di sini jarang ya semacam galeri yang memajang karya seni rupa *ato memang saya yang kurang niat nyari ya*

      • Banyak kok art gallery di Jakarta. Balai Budaya di Jl Gereja Theresia sering ada pameran atau di pusat kebudayaan Belanda, Jerman & Perancis sering ada pameran seni Dan.

    2. Wah, museum Van Gogh di Amsterdam… Pengen ke sana. Waktu saya ke sana dulu nggak sempat masuk. Cuma lihat dari luar saja. Tapi tampilan dari luarnya keren banget!

    3. Mba yo…sekolahku themenya 3 bulan kedepan Music and art lagi. Pintu kelasku pake theme; sun flowernya Van gogh. Wah baru tau kalo dia suicide.

      • Van Gogh sempet dirawat di klinik karena Manic Depressive. Salah satu lukisan termahal dia itu portraitnya dokter therapynya; Portrait of dr Gachet. Ngenes banget hidupnya Van Gogh. Selalu kurang uang, depresi, selama hidupnya hanya laku jual satu lukisan. Sekarang dia jadi seniman abadi yang karyanya ngga ternilai. Sun Flowernya Van Gogh ada beberapa jumlahnya. Dari bunga Mataharinya seger sampe mulai layu. Seru Jo proyeknya. Sukses ya!

    4. Jadi merasa tertampar… Krn Van Gogh was my inspiration behind writing Eloise… And look at that novel… Left unfinished by my laziness…. Maybe 2015 is the year I finish it… To celebrate Van Gogh’s 125th🙂
