Vincent often took in the city’s vibrant nightlife. With his Parisian friends Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Émile Bernard and Louis Anquetin, he visited nightclubs like Le Mirliton & the café Le Tambourin 🌻 Vincent van Gogh, People Walking on a Street in the Evening (1886)

Japanese artists used large areas of colour in their compositions, often with a sharp diagonal. They also regularly zoomed in on a detail in the foreground. Van Gogh was inspired by Japanse prints and adopted these elements in his paintings. 🌻 Field with Irises near Arles (1888)

We're excited to share that we have acquired four rare prints by the American artist Mary Cassatt for our collection. The new prints will be exhibited on a dedicated wall in the permanent collection as soon as the museum reopens to the public. https://t.co/3xvfKVEBZG

Cheers!🍸Van Gogh often drank absinthe, which was a popular drink amongst artists in the 19th century. It was called ‘the green fairy’. The drink contained a substance called thujon, present in wormwood, which was supposed to make you hallucinate.🌻Café Table with Absinthe (1887)

💐 Which flowers do you think Vincent has painted here? This painting is one of his many studies in which he practiced the effect of certain colours on each other. 🌻 Vincent van Gogh, Vase of Flowers (1890)

In this picture, Vincent started with the flowers and butterflies, and filled in the blue background later – the strokes of blue paint occasionally cover the green stems of the flowers. He even left part of the canvas unpainted. 🌻Van Gogh, Butterflies and Poppies (1889)

Do you recognise the hand with the coffee pot from The Potato Eaters? And the clock? Van Gogh spent weeks studying the peasants at their home. These studies show how carefully he prepared for The Potato Eaters. And how important it was to him that the painting would be a success.

🖊️Scribble, scribble! #vangoghinspires Nik Courtney: ‘ I wanted to portray Van Gogh in my own style of drawing, using layers upon layers of tiny scribbles, taking inspiration from van Gogh's use/enhancement of colour and his wonderful way of evoking life, movement and emotion.’

📝‘Painters —to speak only of them— being dead and buried, speak to a following generation or to several following generations through their works. [..] In the life of the painter, death may perhaps not be the most difficult thing’ 🌻Vincent van Gogh, Wheatfield with Crows (1890)

A word-painter! In his letters, Vincent writes passionately about everything that was on his mind: religion, art, books, money, family issues, artistic opinions, love… he deals with it all. 🌻 Sheet 3 of a letter from Vincent to Theo with sketch of Pollard Willow (verso) (1882)

Vincent: ‘He who lives uprightly and experiences true difficulty and disappointment and is nonetheless undefeated by it is worth more than someone who prospers and knows nothing but relative good fortune.’ 🌻Vincent van Gogh, Seascape near Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer (1888)

📝‘I keep on making what I can’t do yet in order to learn to be able to do it’, wrote Vincent – who never gave up – to his friend Anthon van Rappard. #MondayMotivation. Vincent gives us our Monday Motivation, where do you find yours? 🌻 Self-Portrait as a Painter (1886)

📝‘I well knew that one could break one’s arms and legs before, and that then afterwards that could get better but I didn’t know that one could break one’s brain and that afterwards that got better too’ 🌻Vincent van Gogh, Sunflowers Gone to Seed (1887)

🎇It’s New Year’s Eve! 📝‘I’m just writing to wish you a happy New Year, may it be a good year for you in every way and, I add egoistically, for myself as well’, wrote Vincent to his brother Theo in 1882. We wish you a Happy New Year! 🌻 Vincent van Gogh, Almond Blossom (1890)
