The Van Gogh Church (one of the five official Van Gogh Monuments in Etten-Leur) has a permanent exhibition which colourfully recounts the story and significance of Vincent's period in Etten in Brabant. The Van Gogh family lived here for seven years. It was here in 1881 that Vincent received his very first studio at the age of 28. This is where he first registered as an artist. This is where it all began.
Etten was a turning point in Van Gogh's life. The story is told in colourful detail in the Van Gogh Church.
In addition to the permanent exhibition, the beautiful sculptures by the Oisterwijk artist Ien Sluyters can be admired, as well as the recently acquired three paintings by Henri De Cocker and six pochoirs by Elsbeth Veerman and paintings by Eugenie Stade.
From 4 August to 29 August, a new temporary exhibition will be on display alongside the permanent Van Gogh exhibition: Time stopped, with paintings on paper by the artist Elsbeth Veerman.
