40 Van Gogh monuments

Brabant is home to a large number of locations with a discernible and tangible heritage. Places where Vincent van Gogh left his mark. He was inspired by the countryside and the hard working Brabant people. In Nuenen there are no fewer than 23 locations, objects and monuments in Nuenen that remind us of Van Gogh. 

To find the monuments in Nuenen, we strongly recommend the book Out and About with Vincent.

Trips out to Eindhoven

Vincent made regular visits to Eindhoven, mostly to buy painting materials and also to visit his artist friends Willem van de Wakker, Anton Kerssemakers, Dimmen Gestel and Antoon Hermans.

He found subjects for his paintings and drawings on the way: the watermill at Kollen, the watermill at Gennep, the Martinus Church in Tongelre, the railway sheds at the old station in Eindhoven, the Catharinakerk church and the telegraph office.
