Vincent is back tells the story of Van Gogh in two parts. In part 1, Native soil (showing until 1 April 2013), emphasis is placed on Van Gogh’s Dutch period (1881-1886). In part 2, Land of light, the accent shifts to the works from his time in France (1886-1890), when the artist reached maturity.
In addition to the paintings, ten drawings are also on display. These are rarely shown due to their sensitivity to light. The presentation is arranged thematically and will be illustrated with texts, including quotations from Van Gogh’s letters.
After Vincent is back, a varying display of the Van Gogh collection will retain a prominent position in the presentation of the collection.
