Explore Van Gogh Museum

View the nuanced creations of this prolific artist who, although unappreciated during his lifetime, is now one of the most celebrated painters worldwide. The Van Gogh Museum is dedicated to Vincent Van Gogh and his contemporaries. Here is a list of his masterpieces that should not be missed on your tour.

Sunflowers In Arles

Van Gogh wanted to be known as the painter of sunflowers, which signified ‘gratitude’ to him. Such was his adoration for this flower that at his funeral, many attendees brought the yellow flower as a testament to his memory. From an artistic perspective, this piece demonstrates the creation of an eloquent image using numerous variations of just a single color. Today, the titular yellow flower of this piece is almost instantly associated with the painter himself. 

Self Portrait As A Painter

In this self-portrait, Van Gogh depicted himself as a painter, holding the tools of his trade behind his easel. In contrast to the 1886 version that preceded it, this creation’s bold and bright colors represent Van Gogh’s growth into a modern artist with a new painting style. He took great care to intensify the colors by juxtaposing pairs of complementary shades like red and green, blue and orange, and yellow and purple.

Wheatfield With Crows

As one of Van Gogh’s most famous paintings, there are many theories about its metaphorical implications. The overcast tone and the pictured scene are said to signify the approaching end of his life. While he certainly wanted the wheatfields and stormy skies to depict his “extreme loneliness” and “sadness”, they were also representative of the “healthy” and “fortifying” effects of the countryside.

Head Of A Skeleton With A Burning Cigarette

This painting was conceived while Van Gogh was studying in Antwerp at the art academy. His command of anatomy is clear as day in this painting. Although drawing skeletons was a routine exercise in his studies at the academy, it is speculated that he painted this creation between or after his lessons - given that painting skeletons were not a designated part of the curriculum.

The Harvest

This flat landscape is a study of peasant life and working in the fields. Van Gogh painted several stages in the process of harvesting - successfully conveying the heat and tedium of the labor through yellow and green tones contrasted with the blue sky. Interestingly, this period was immensely ripe artistically, for he finished 10 paintings and 5 drawings in a little over a week. He saw this as one of his most successful creations yet, and in describing it to his brother, Vincent wrote that the ‘canvas kills all the rest’.
