Het Noordbrabants Museum acquires exceptional watercolour by Vincent van Gogh

8 December 2016

Het Noordbrabants Museum recently acquired from a private collection The garden of the vicarage at Nuenen by Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890). The work of October-November 1885 is the last known watercolour Van Gogh produced in Nuenen and occupies a special place in his oeuvre. This acquisition – the most important purchase ever made by Het Noordbrabants Museum – underlines our ambition to offer a representative overview of Van Gogh’s Brabant period by means of original works by the artist. The purchase of The garden of the vicarage at Nuenen was made possible by the generous support of the BankGiro Lottery, the Mondriaan Fund, the VSB Foundation, the Friends of Het Noordbrabants Museum, the Renschdael Art Foundation and Coen Teulings. The BankGiro Lottery donated almost half of the total purchase price of over 1 million euros. To celebrate its acquisition, Het Noordbrabants Museum is offering free admission to the public on Saturday, 10 December from 11 am to 5 pm.
