The drawings and graphics of Vincent van Gogh in the Kröller-Müller Museum

This catalogue contains fascinating descriptions of Van Gogh’s works on paper and illustrations of the highest standard. It follows Van Gogh’s development as a draughtsman from the moment he decided to become an artist in the Belgian mining region ‘de Borinage’ through his stay in Saint-Rémy in the south of France – where he produced such beautiful drawings as Blooming rose bushes in the garden of the asylum – until his time in Auvers-sur-Oise. Many of the drawings displayed Van Gogh’s great urge to experiment with materials and techniques. The catalogue provides the most up-to-date information about all 182 works on paper by Van Gogh in the collection. It incorporates the results of recent art-historical research into the date, provenance, authenticity and exhibition history of each work.

This is the first time that a study has been devoted solely to Van Gogh’s drawings in the collection. In 2003 the museum published a catalogue of the museum’s collection of Van Gogh’s paintings. The two volumes make the most recent research into Van Gogh’s work available to all.
