Mr and Mrs Kröller-Müller and their advisor H.P. Bremmer
Today Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) is one of the world’s most famous artists, but he received little recognition during his lifetime. He sold very few works and was supported financially by his brother Theo. At the start of the 20th century he was still only celebrated in small circles. The art teacher H.P. Bremmer was among these admirers. He regarded Van Gogh as one of the ‘great spirits of modern art’ and advised Helene Kröller-Müller to purchase his work. Between 1908 and 1929, together with her husband Anton, she accumulated the unique collection that is now preserved in the museum. The attention that the Kröller-Müller’s devoted to Van Gogh has contributed greatly to the recognition that his work currently enjoys.
