Vincent van Gogh lived in Nuenen for two years (from December 1883 until November 1885). The artist produced a quarter of all his works in Nuenen. He drew and painted mostly weavers and peasants in the fields but also went out regularly to capture the surroundings. His first masterpiece The Potato Eaters was produced here. Nuenen can be seen as an outdoor museum with 23 buildings and locations in the countryside that have a direct link with Van Gogh’s work and stay. You will get to learn about Van Gogh as a person and follow his development as a painter in the Vincentre. Modern audio-visual techniques will make you think you are back in the time of Brabant’s most famous artist.
