Van Gogh Museum
Amsterdam honours one of its own.
This museum's collection includes 200 of the 300 paintings by Vincent Van Gogh and 500 of his 1200 drawings, as well as more than 700 letters, particularly from his correspondence with his brother Theo.
Among the most well-known works by this genius: The Potato Eaters (1885), Vincent's house in Arles (1888) and the unmissable Sunflowers.
In the rooms which are not devoted to Van Gogh, the visitor can admire the works of his friends: Monet, Pissarro, Gauguin and Toulouse-Lautrec.
