About 10 weeks ago Vincent loved Japanese art! He had a great collection of Japanese prints and sometimes he copied them, to learn from it. It was quite difficult to get the pictures look exactly like the original. Vincent had a trick for that, and this weekend children aged 6 to 12 years can learn that trick in our workshop!

About 10 weeks ago Today is the birthday of Vincent Willem van Gogh (1890), son of Vincent’s brother Theo van Gogh and Jo Van Gogh-Bonger. He was the founder of the Van Gogh Museum.
 
Theo wrote to Vincent on 31 January 1890: As we told you, we’ll name him after you, and I’m making the wish that he may be as determined and as courageous as you. 
 
A few weeks later Vincent wrote to his mother: I started right away to make a painting for him, to hang in their bedroom. Large branches of white almond blossom against a blue sky.
 
That’s a great gift for a baby boy, don’t you think?
