The Van Gogh Museum has added the two most important works from the graphic oeuvre of artist Félix Vallotton (1865-1925) to its print collection: the series of ten woodcuts Intimités (Intimacies) and the woodcut La Paresse (Laziness). Both works were purchased with the support of the BankGiro Lottery.

2012: Vincent van Gogh's watercolour Pollard willow
For the first time in five years, the Van Gogh Museum has purchased a work by Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890). The watercolour Pollard willow is a major addition to the museum’s collection, because it is one of the most representative watercolours from Van Gogh’s period in The Hague. The purchase of Pollard willow was made possible by support from the Vincent van Gogh Foundation, the BankGiro Lottery, the Rembrandt Association and her Prints and Drawings Fund, the VSB Foundation, and the Mondriaan Fund.


Camille Pissarro (1831-1903), Het Hooien, Éragny (1887), Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam

2011: Two works by Camille Pissarro
In April 2011 the Van Gogh Museum has enriched its collection with the purchase of two works by Camille Pissarro (1831-1903): the painting The haymaking, Éragny (1887) and the gouache Cowgirl in morning sun (1887). The pictures were bought with financial support from the BankGiro Loterij, the Vereniging Rembrandt and its Claude Monet Fund and the VSBfonds.




Louis Anquetin (1861-1932), Vrouw op de Champs-Élysées bij nacht (ca. 1891), Van Gogh Museum, amsterdam

2010: Woman on the Champs-Élysées by night
In May 2010 the Van Gogh Museum purchased the painting Woman on the Champs-Élysées by night (c. 1891) by Louis Anquetin (1861-1932). The purchase was made possible with support of the BankGiro Lottery, the Rembrandt Association (supported by Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds) and the VSB Foundation.




Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947), Montmartre in de regen, Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam

2009: Montmartre in the rain
In May 2009 the Van Gogh Museum enriched its collection with the painting Montmartre in the rain by Pierre Bonnard (1867-1947). The work forms a valuable addition to the Van Gogh Museum's extensive collection of Nabis prints. Bonnard painted Montmartre in the rain in 1897 at the peak of his Nabis period. The painting is typical of Bonnard's early style. The acquisition represents the Van Gogh Museum's next step in building up a collection of Nabis paintings, following its purchase of The two sisters by Maurice Denis (1870-1943) in 1991. The purchase was made possible with support from the BankGiro Lottery, which contributed around half the purchase price, the Rembrandt Association (supported by Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds) and the VSB Foundation.




Maurice de Vlaminck (1876-1958), De Seine bij Nanterre, 1907, Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam

2008: The Seine at Nanterre
In 2008 the Van Gogh Museum enriched its collection with The Seine at Nanterre by Maurice de Vlaminck (1876-1958). Its acquisition forms a worthy addition to the Van Gogh Museum collection and it means that the Dutch public art collection now numbers three works by this artist. The painting is a good example of Vincent van Gogh’s influence on later painters, in this case the Fauvist school of the early 20th century. The Seine at Nanterre was purchased with the support of the BankGiro Lottery (around half of the purchase price), the Mondriaan Foundation, the Rembrandt Association (supported by Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds) and the VSB Foundation.

2006: Pissarro and 55 letters
In February 2006 the museum extended the paintings collection with the addition of a classic Impressionist landscape, Route de Versailles, Rocquencourt by Camille Pissarro (1830-1903) and enlarged the print collection with the acquisition of a remarkable Elles series by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901). The canvas was acquired with the support of the BankGiro Lottery (approximately half the purchase price), the Vereniging Rembrandt (supported by Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds), the Mondriaan Foundation and the VSB Foundation. The print series was obtained for the Vincent van Gogh Foundation (2006) with support from the Herinneringsfonds Vincent van Gogh.

In June 2006 The Van Gogh Museum acquired a remarkable group of 55 letters written by Vincent van Gogh to the Dutch artist Anthon van Rappard (1858-1892). The letters were acquired by the Vincent van Gogh Foundation with funds from the Mondriaan Foundation, the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, the VSB Foundation and Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds.

In addition to these regular contributors to art purchases in the Netherlands, this acquisition was also supported by the museum's new longterm 'promoting partner': Rabobank.
