press release

A second presentation will follow from 7 April to 22 September 2013, with the accent on the Land of light. Land of light (1886-1890) shows how Van Gogh further developed his personal style during his French period, with expressive brushstrokes and an abundance of colour.

Van Gogh’s work occupies a special place in the collection of Anton and Helene Kröller-Müller, the founders of the Kröller-Müller Museum. Thanks to them, the museum has the second largest collection of work by Van Gogh in the world. Between 1908 and 1929, they acquired no fewer than 91 paintings and 180 works on paper by the artist; their budget was virtually unlimited. Vincent van Gogh was only celebrated among small circles at the start of the 20th century. The amount of attention he received from the Kröller-Müllers has contributed greatly to the recognition that his work currently enjoys.
