Upcoming Cultural Season at the Van Gogh Museum
Your Loving Vincent’: Van Gogh’s Greatest Letters
9 October 2020 until 10 January 2021, exhibition wing
In this autumn exhibition, the museum will explore how, besides being a talented artist, Vincent van Gogh was also an enthusiastic letter writer.
With at least 875 documents, the Van Gogh Museum is home to the world’s largest collection of Van Gogh’s letters (the complete correspondence of Vincent van Gogh consists of some 930 letters and associated documents) but, due to their fragility, these letters are rarely put on public display.
‘Your loving Vincent’: Van Gogh’s Greatest Letters offers visitors the opportunity to view 40 of Vincent van Gogh’s greatest letters alongside iconic artworks such as The Bedroom (1888), The Sower (1888) and The Potato Eaters (1885).
Until recently, the museum collection did not contain any letters written by Van Gogh to Emile Bernard, but this changed with the acquisition of letter 716, which Van Gogh wrote with his artist friend Paul Gauguin. This letter is acquired by the Vincent van Gogh Foundation for the collection of the Van Gogh Museum and will be on display for the first time in this exhibition.
