Digital Van Gogh map
You will find the Digital Van Gogh map here
This is an interactive, digital map of Europe with plenty of
interesting information about Vincent van Gogh. Users of this map
can make various different choices. For example 'Where he lived
and worked' or 'Residence' in which many
locations that were important to Vincent during his life are
displayed. These places can be viewed by means of coloured
'pinpoints' and are spread across the Netherlands, Belgium, Great
Britain and France.
Vincent was an early European in those days!
Digital and interactive
If you click on a particular location, a screen will
appear showing information and often one or more photos of that
place. In addition to the maps mentioned above you can also choose
from the 'Museum' section. A map will then be displayed
showing all the information centres and museums in Europe in which
work by Vincent van Gogh is exhibited. You can easily switch to
that particular museum's website by clicking on a link. In the
selection entitled 'Various' all the monuments and statues
of Vincent van Gogh throughout Europe can be found. By
selecting 'Painting location', you can still see locations
as they were when Vincent saw them during his lifetime…. Complete
with photos! The locations and information on this interactive Van
Gogh map are continually being updated!
We would therefore very much appreciate it if users of this digital
map pass on any comments, additions or criticisms to us. The
easiest way to do this is to use the contact form under the
'Contact form link on the site's homepage. In this way the digital
Van Gogh map can only get better.
With this new addition to the Vincentre website, the
Vincentre Van Gogh Museum in Nuenen now offers an
extra (free!) service to visitors to who appreciate this world
famous artist. Maybe this will be an inspiration to visit (once
again) the Nuenen Van Gogh locations in real life.
And of course the Vincentre in the
outdoor museum of Nuenen.
Well worth the effort!
Take note: this map already has an English and French version. In
due course the information will also be available in German,
Spanish and Japanese!'
