Vincent. The Van Gogh Museum in the Hermitage Amsterdam

The Van Gogh Museum's temporary stay at the Hermitage Amsterdam is an opportunity to discover the work of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) in an entirely new way. Admire works by Vincent van Gogh from tour collection in a new context. This presentation of some 75 important paintings, combined with letters, drawings and objects, allows you to follow Vincent on his personal quest to the heart of his artistic being, while exploring the themes of his art.

"Moving is causing me some considerable concern these days, because it’s never straightforward. All the same, it will have to happen, if not now then later, anyway, and in the long run it’s better to be in one’s own place, that’s for sure." Vincent van Gogh, 21 April 1885

Van Gogh Mile

The Van Gogh Mile is a special walk from the Van Gogh Museum to the Hermitage Amsterdam. The route, designed by the artist Henk Schut, will lead visitors along an inspiring path to the Van Gogh Museum’s temporary location at the Hermitage Amsterdam.

The Van Gogh Mile is a triptych consisting of the 'Red Line', sound installations, and the Van Gogh Mile app. These layers give different dimensions to the same image. Together they demonstrate that the themes discussed in Vincent’s letters are still relevant today.

“Always continue walking a lot and loving nature, for that’s the real way to learn to understand art better and better. Painters understand nature and love it, and teach us to see.”
Vincent van Gogh, January 1874
