Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Netherlands - Encircle Photos

29 Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Netherlands

There are two other art museums encircling Museumplein (Museum Square). One celebrates the illustrious, prolific yet short career of Dutch post-impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890). You will be impressed by the world’s largest collection of his flamboyant, colorful paintings and drawings. The nearly 1,000 pieces displayed in chronological order reflect his evolving mental issues until Van Gogh’s suicide at age 37. Finally, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam is devoted to modern and contemporary art. The collection of 90,000 works is displayed in the legacy Weissman Building (1895) and the adjacent Benthem Crouwel Wing (2012), a bubble-like structure the locals call The Bathtub.
