VAN GOGH, born too early and not yet understood...

Arts and Crafts tour in Amsterdam

Tour Price : $240-300 Duration : 4 hours Languages: Dutch, English

I have a passion for Vincent Van Gogh! He is without doubt together with Rembrandt the most famous painter of the Netherlands. His works, most of which are sold for millians of dollars/euros and are wanted by many of the notable world museums, often depicts the life and landscapes of the Netherlands. But he was not that happy in the Netherlands, it was too dark and he was searching for 'light and natural color' what he finally found in the south of France.
If you are interested to understand Van Gogh’s talent and his position in modern art (which painers did inspire him and which painters after him he did inspire) this tour will be interesting for you.
Even if you are not that much into art but art I will explain you in great lines the importance and the talent of Van Gogh.
And last but not least you will hear more about the fascinating and dramatic story of this strange man who despite his genious remained misunderstood and never became happy and respected.
Two museums in the Netherlands have a large Van Gogh collection:
1. The Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam
2. The Kroller Muller museum in the national park The High Veluwe.
It is possible to make the combination with a  walking tour in Amsterdam or the Veluwe (east of the Netherlands)
