Press Release: Vincent van Gogh on Amsterdam

Exhibition title
Vincent van Gogh on Amsterdam

12 July - 12 October 2003

Vincent van Gogh lived in Amsterdam for around a year from May 1877, preparing for his Theology studies. While here, he visited churches and museums, as well as friends and relatives. His letters to his brother Theo vividly depict life in nineteenth-century Amsterdam. And much of what Vincent saw can still be seen today.

The exhibition centres on quotations from the letters Van Gogh wrote and the links to various places in the city that he visited. Photographer and producer Reindert Groot of Amsterdam traced Vincent’s footsteps and connects Van Gogh’s perspective with today’s Amsterdam.

From 12 July to 12 October 2003 quotations from Van Gogh’s letters will be shown alongside photos by Reindert Groot, as well as historic documents at Our Lord in the Attic, the seventeenth-century hidden church in the heart of the old inner city.

Throughout the exhibition, the museum will remain open every day until 19.00!
