Celebrate Van Gogh’s 125th Anniversary

This year marks the 125th anniversary of the death of one of the world’s most enduring artists, and museums in his home country of The Netherlands are commemorating the occasion with an unprecedented collection of exhibitions.

Our new anniversary tour this October (Oct 27–30, 2015) is an amazing opportunity to join art historian Colin Bailey to view and appreciate the widest selection of van Gogh’s work that has ever been shown in one locality, which will provide extraordinary insight into the legendary artist’s life and work

Looking forward to the tour, Colin told us that “as well as the fabulous permanent collections in Amsterdam and Otterloo, this special anniversary year provides the chance to see major works from van Gogh’s early years, as well as those of his contemporaries. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity for all of us.”

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE:

• The rarely-visited Het Noordbrabants Museum, whose important collection of van Gogh’s early works will be expanded with surprising new loans in an exciting anniversary exhibition.

• Dinner in the Watermill at Opwetten, painted by van Gogh in 1884.

• Walking tour of Nuenen, the town where van Gogh lived with his parents and produced important works before leaving to study at the Antwerp Academy.

“Painters being dead and buried, speak to a following generation or to several following generations through their works. In the life of a painter, death may perhaps not be the most difficult thing.”

Vincent van Gogh, 1888
