At first sight, this painting appears to be a jumble of bright colours and strange abstract forms. But after recently discovering where Vincent made this painting, we can see that he painted exactly what he saw. 🌻Tree Roots (1890) 📸 The place where Van Gogh painted Tree Roots.

A dangerous woman, who deliberately used her charms to seduce men before destroying them. Do you think they are still around nowadays? At the end of the 19th century, the ‘femme fatale’ was a popular theme in French printmaking.🌻 Félicien Rops, Lady in the Carcel Lamp (1876)

Van Gogh as a student? Lots of people think that Vincent had no training at all before starting painting. But he did in fact take lessons at the art academies in Brussels (1880) and Antwerp (1886). 🌻 Vincent van Gogh, The Discus Thrower (1886)

Our paintings often travel to other museums. When lots of borders closed following the coronavirus outbreak, many paintings stayed ‘on holiday’ longer than planned. Thankfully, this painting is in very good hands at the 🌻Van Gogh, Thresher (after Millet) (1889).

Were you right? You’ll certainly find lots of paintings by Vincent at our museum. We’ve got no less than 210 in our collection. But we’ve also got prints, paintings, drawings and even sculptures by 253 other artists!

Good questions! The largest painting found in Van Gogh’s oeuvre is a landscape Water-Mill at Gennep measuring 85 by 151 cm (F125). The average size canvas he used is about 70 x 90. On this size 30 he painted most of his masterpieces like Sunflowers and the Bedroom. ^Rose

‘My name is Suwit Avirut and I made a 3D model of the Starry Night. It is a prototype based on simulated brushwork technique’. How does Vincent inspire you? Share your story in the Van Gogh Inspires Group on Facebook 🌻 Suwit, thanks for sharing your work!

Did you know that he made three versions of The Bedroom? If he found a subject he liked, he often painted a number of versions. He usually planned to sell a new version, or give it away. Find out more: . 🌻 Van Gogh, The Bedroom (1888)
