It is the most important acquisition ever made by Het Noordbrabants Museum: The garden of the vicarage at Nuenen by Vincent van Gogh. This work, painted in 1885, is the last known watercolour Van Gogh produced in the Noord-Brabant town of Nuenen. “Van Gogh lived with his parents in the vicarage of Nuenen for nearly a year and a half,” begins Charles de Mooij, director of the museum. “The garden behind the vicarage was one of his favourite spots – it was an inspiration for many of his works.” The watercolour occupies a special place in Van Gogh’s work.
