2015 marks exactly 125 years since the death of Vincent van Gogh. The painter still inspires many artists today. In memory of his life and work, many European countries are paying tribute to Van Gogh with unique exhibitions and celebrations.
The Van Gogh Europe Foundation – consisting of 30 museums, heritage sites and various organizations in France, Belgium and the Netherlands – has put together a comprehensive Van Gogh programme. This will be the first time that international institutions will work together on such a large scale to preserve the legacy of an artist. The Van Gogh Museum, the Kröller-Müller Museum, Van Gogh Brabant and Mons 2015, European Capital of Culture, are all behind this special initiative.
