Places linked to Vincent van Gogh (the Netherlands, Belgium and France)

Locations linked to Van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh is one of the most famous painters in the world. During his short ten-years-long career, he made around 1,800 artworks. However, he wasn’t only an artist. He lived in four different countries and was one of the first modern travellers back in 1880s. After working as a museum guide at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam for three years, I knew his paintings exhibited there by heart. But, I started to feel the wanderlust for visiting those places depicted on van Gogh’s paintings, as well. So, in spring 2019 I set on a train in Amsterdam, and during the next two weeks visited and explored locations linked to van Gogh in the Netherlands, Belgium and France.

Meet the artist: Alina Tang

When I first saw some of Alina Tang’s work, I was so amazed by the colours and the energy it has. It instantly makes you feel great and like there are so many colours in this world you haven’t noticed before. Since she just opened a studio in Amsterdam where you can see and buy some of her work, or join some of Alina’s workshops, I thought it would be a great occasion to introduce her work to my readers.
