Vincent van Gogh – Homeland

SK-A-3262Vincent van Gogh, self-portrait
The origins of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890), together with his great masterpieces are established in Brabant. He was born and raised here. This is where his love of the farmland, the countryside and the simplistic lifestyle originated.
AardappeletersThe Potato Eaters
We drive to the Van Gogh Village Nuenen, where Vincent made his famous first painting of the potato eaters. He lived in this village as a young man from 1883 until 1885. The village is located in the lovely province of Brabant. Nuenen and its surroundings can be seen as a living museum with many memories of Van Gogh. Some landscapes in the neighborhood still breathe the atmosphere of his time. The village is about a one hour drive from Amsterdam. In the village we visit the beautiful new Vincentre, a unique multi-media museum, in which the life of this renowned artist can be seen and experienced from close up.
