Van Gogh Museum
Through Vincent van Gogh’s paintings, the museum chronicles his journey from Holland (where his work was dark and somber) to Paris where, under the influence of the Impressionists, he discovered vivid color. From there he moved to Arles, where he was incredibly productive, often completing a canvas every day.
Famous works on display include The Potato Eaters (1885), The Yellow House in Arles (1888) and The Bedroom (1888). One of his last paintings, Wheatfield with Crows (1890), is an ominous work finished shortly before his suicide. Of special note is the wall on the second floor, which displays 18 paintings produced during a two year period in the south of France, generally considered to be his artistic high point. A new wing, set partly underground, showcases temporary exhibits by van Gogh and other artists.
