Visiting address and opening hours of the Library & Documentation.
The Van Gogh Museum library focuses on the history of art of the nineteenth century to the early twentieth century.
The documentation centre collects and manages information about works in the collections of the Van Gogh Museum and The Mesdag Collection.
Since 1992 the extensive nineteenth-century book collection of the Amsterdam artists' society Arti et Amicitiae has been part of the Van Gogh Museum library.
In order to fully understand Van Gogh's work it is important to research the literary sources that inspired him.
The online library catalogue lists books, articles, journals (current subscriptions at present not included) and audiovisual media.
