The idea behind this is that the artist continues to inspire many people even today: no wonder that many surveys show that Van Gogh is one of the most popular artists ever.

We want to use 2015 to provide a rich programme for everyone who shares the passion of Van Gogh’s life and work, and which does justice to the artist.”
The Van Gogh Europe Foundation (‘Stichting Van Gogh Europe’) was established in January 2013 by the Van Gogh Museum, the Kröller-Müller Museum and Van Gogh Brabant with the aim of making Van Gogh’s heritage jointly accessible to everyone. These organisations together with Mons 2015, form a collaboration under the name Van Gogh Europe comprising around 30 institutions which are preserving Van Gogh’s heritage actively in the Netherlands, Belgium, France and England.

By working together with the various Van Gogh locations, we can make his life tangible. This cooperation creates a valuable extra dimension.”
