History of The Vangoghgallery.com Website

A variety of people have worked on this website over time. It started as a very simple project with just a few images and has continued to grow ever since. Today the site has more content than it ever has had and we continue to make updates and improvements.

We've updated a large number of the content pages, changed the underlying technology completely, added a number of new pages as well as the Silverlight book for fun. There is also an Ajax powered data control running against a SQL database that allows visitors to sort and filter the complete listing of his works. We'd like to thank the web designers at The Net Impact for all of their assistance in improving the website and the software developers at Unidev for the help with the technology components.

In order to help consolidate all of the daily events that occur worldwide related to Van Gogh, we also have a Van Gogh Gallery Facebook page, Van Gogh Gallery Twitter account and the Van Gogh Gallery blog. These interactive social resources are great tools for keeping up with events. In addition, we continue to update the website and are always interested in your opinions on how we can improve.

We have also added a section for user content which we really enjoy. Our next big project is to move the site to the Auctori content management system, that will make updates much easier and give us the ability to add more content to the site very easily.

We keep working to make this a great resource on Vincent van Gogh, helping to increase understanding about the huge influence he has had on our world.

Thanks for visiting!

"I can't work without a model. I won't say I turn my back on nature ruthlessly in order to turn a study into a picture, arranging the colors, enlarging and simplifying; but in the matter of form I am too afraid of departing from the possible and the true."
