Where to Gogh?

The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, where Vincent spent some of his time as an artist, contains the largest collection of his works and his contemporaries (Monet, Gauguin, Manet, etc). The collection contains sketches, paintings, and other works of art throughout his life. The exhibition allows visitors to follow his career from his early days to the final ones, witnessing various trends, phases, and his development as an artist. In addition to the Van Gogh works, the museum has temporary exhibits that highlight various subjects from 19th-century art. The current temporary exhibit is "Barcelona 1900" and will run until January 20, 2008.
