Van Gogh Still Beloved in Amsterdam

Thousands of locals in Amsterdam turned up for the grand reopening of the city's Van Gogh Museum, a welcome return to service following a seven-month refit of the famed artist's museum. Dedicated primarily to Van Gogh, but bringing with his works a touch from those who inspired him, the museum seeks first and foremost to showcase the artist's evolution.

As if to prove that there is no artist more passionately loved than Vincent Van Gogh, Amsterdammers turned out in their thousands on May Day, impatient to see the Van Gogh Museum as it opened its doors after a seven-month refit. They were queueing to see the reopening exhibition Van Gogh at Work, which offers the chance to see important loans – among them “Sunflowers” from London, hung alongside the museum’s own version, and “The Penitentiary” from Moscow.
