Vincent van Gogh’s period in Nuenen was of significant importance.
This period also greatly influenced what he painted in France. The fascinating stories about his life in Nuenen and his quest for light, colour and perspective resulted in his first masterpiece, and these are a central theme of our museum.
After visiting the museum it will be time to go out for a walk and see the various locations that Vincent painted. Discover the places where he stood, and see what he saw…. and painted 140 years ago. It’s like walking through one of his paintings.
No fewer than 24 locations in Nuenen remind us of Van Gogh; 14 of which were painted or sketched by him. The other objects are statues or buildings with a special significanceSee and Do
