Although Vincent has spent a lot of time outside his home country, there are many places related to Van Gogh in the Netherlands. He was born there and has spent his childhood years in the south of the country. This is also where he lived during the first half of his painting career. The Netherlands is home to two museums with the most significant collections of his work, as well.
I have spent a weekend in Brabant exploring some places related to Van Gogh’s life during my project “Follow the footsteps of Van Gogh“. Here are some places I have visited, together with my recommendations for the best museums with Van Gogh’s paintings in the Netherlands.
