North-Brabant is the birthplace of Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh (1835 – 1890), one of the most famous painters in the world.
In the new exhibition Van Gogh in Brabant, you will discover the strong connection he had with this province. He was born in Zundert and has lived in various places in Brabant. The exhibition presents twelve art pieces by Van Gogh as well as letters, personal documents, photographs, animations and other objects.
Het Noordbrabants Museum is the only museum location in the south of the Netherland where original works by the painter are kept. The presentation shows the various developments of van Gogh. The most important themes from his Brabant period are highlighted: the rural environment, peasant life and still life. In North-Brabant he took his first steps toward becoming an artist. He never lost his love for Brabant and its landscape during his life.
