The Van Gogh Museum is a definitive tourist attraction in
Amsterdam. Situated in a modern building, the simple architecture
subtly underscores the artists' colourful and extraordinary work.
The museum houses a permanent display of several hundred of Van
Gogh's paintings and drawings, many of which will be familiar to
even the untrained eye. The collection is organised according to
three criteria. The first of these is the work of the artist, which
is divided into five notable periods. Then there is the display of
work of other artists, including those of his friends and
contemporaries. The third section is the showcase of the museum's
history, recording its progress with a feature on the development
of the new wing designed by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa,
built to house the temporary exhibitions.
