Van Gogh is everywhere

Vincent van Gogh’s works of art are admired worldwide. But this year, his work is really thrown into the spotlight and you won’t be able to miss it. 2015 marks the 125th anniversary of Van Gogh’s death – on July 29 to be precise – and therefore several museums are organizing special exhibitions to celebrate the Dutch master’s legacy and to draw attention to the 125 Years of Inspiration. If you’re visiting the Netherlands and you wish to see more of his works, here are a few of the places you can go:
