General description: Van Gogh Museum

The state-owned Van Gogh Museum contains the world's largest collection of works by this famous artist.
 
A troubled genius
The collection is so large owing to the rather regrettable fact that Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) sold next to no paintings during his lifetime. The works remained within the family which then bequeathed the 205 paintings and 500 drawings to the museum in 1963. The exhibition tracks the painter's turbulent and tragic life from its beginnings in the Netherlands, through his time in Paris and the South of France, up to his death in Auvers-sur-Oise. Alongside self-portraits and a version of the "Sunflowers", highlights also include "The Potato Eaters", the "Yellow House", the "Bedroom" and the "Cornfield with Crows". Works by other painters from the 19th and 20th centuries are also on display. Beside this museum there is a three-storey pavilion which, designed in 1973 by Gerrit Rietveld and opened in 1999, is connected by an underground passage to the museum, and hosts temporary exhibitions of art contemporary with Van Gogh's lifetime.
