World's most comprehensive Van Gogh collection
The most visited museum in the Netherlands houses the works of iconic Dutch post-Impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh (1853–90) and his contemporaries, including Manet, Monet, Gaughin, Seurat, van Dongen, Redon and Rodin. Needless to say, the museum's 200 paintings, 400 drawings, and 700 letters by van Gogh constitutes the world's largest van Gogh collection. The museum was founded as recently as 1973, opening well after the death of its designer Gerrit Thomas Rietveld (1888–1964). Check website for convoluted seasonal opening hours.

      World's Largest Collection of Van Goghs
      The Van Gogh Museum is a manageable size museum even for people who don't like art museums. I found it enlightening to stroll through and note the various categories of Van Gogh's work, including drawings, landscapes, portraits and still lifes. I was previously unaware of how Impressionistic his early landscapes were. The degree of Van Gogh's psychosis also becomes apparent as you observe the changes is his works as he gets older. This is a fascinating museum, and I highly recommend it.
