The Vincent van Gogh Foundation, Sompo Japan Insurance Inc. and the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science are the Van Gogh Museum’s founders and benefactors.
Founder: Vincent van Gogh Foundation
The Vincent van Gogh Foundation owns the Van Gogh Museum collection and also contributes to various museum projects. For example, the foundation has contributed to research into the collection of 19th-century French prints, the publication of this print collection on the museum website and the acquisition of 91 prints by Camille Pissarro.
Sompo Japan Insurance Inc.
Founded in 1888, Japan’s largest indemnity insurance firm expanded operations into Europe in 1995. Support from Sompo Japan contributed to the realisation of our new Entrance Hall (designed by Kisho Kurokawa Architect & Associates) in September 2015.
Ministry of Education, Culture and Science
The Van Gogh Museum receives an annual subsidy from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science.
