The only place in Brabant displaying Van Gogh’s work  Het Noordbrabants Museum is the only place in Brabant displaying Van Gogh’s inspiring work. Following our first purchase in 1984 and supported by a gradually increasing number of loans from fellow museums and private lenders, the museum has been able to consolidate its collection over the past four years.  From Brabant’s ‘painter guy’ to worldwide phenomenon

The presentation, of course, also focuses on Van Gogh's life. Vincent lived half of his life in Brabant, the region that shaped him. The presentation follows a timeline supported by personal documents, photos, and animated letter fragments that reveal more about Vincent’s life. Van Gogh's link to Brabant’s cultural heritage is also explored in his paintings of objects such as baskets, shovels, and hats, which illustrate the reality of everyday life. The presentation also shows how Van Gogh grew from Brabant's 'painter guy' into a worldwide phenomenon.
