During Van Gogh’s time, his work was not recognized as it is today. In fact, he only sold one painting during his lifetime The Red Vineyard; today this painting is located at the Pushkin Museum in Moscow. It was only after his death that Vincent’s sister-in-law Johanna van Gogh-Bonger collected his works and began to donate them for exhibition. Although a few of his works were destroyed in fires, and a few are in locations unknown today, it is incredible how many are on display today for us to view.
Every continent, with the exception of Antarctica, has Van Gogh works on display for the public to view. For the largest collection of Van Gogh works, head to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam where you will see over 200 of his paintings including The Potato Eaters, Almond Blossom, Wheatfield with Crows, self-portraits, plus many of his drawings and letters. While in The Netherlands, be sure to stop in at the Kröller-Müller Museum to see The Café Terrace on the Place du Forum, Arles, at Night as well as a fine selection of other pieces by Van Gogh. Or, perhaps you want to see his most famous painting The Starry Night; it is located in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
