New Exhibition: The Potato Eaters. Mistake or Masterpiece?
The painting The Potato Eaters that Vincent van Gogh made in 1885 in Nuenen, Brabant, is now one of the highlights of the museum collection, but was not widely considered to be a success at the time.
The exhibition focuses on the genesis of The Potato Eaters, Van Gogh’s dedication and perseverance, what the work meant to him, and the criticism that he received for the painting.
On view from 8 October 2021 until 13 February 2022.
