“The Bedroom” (1888)

If you're a Vincent van Gogh enthusiast, you've probably heard of the Van Gogh Museum, an institution that houses the largest collection of work by the Post-Impressionist painter. In the past, Van Gogh fans would have to travel to Amsterdam to view the museum's holdings; but now, anyone can “visit” the site with the simple click of a mouse.

The Van Gogh Museum's digitized collection features high-quality reproductions of nearly 1,000 paintings and drawings by the artist. From world-famous oil paintings like The Bedroom and Sunflowers to lesser-known series of small sketches, these pieces showcase Van Gogh's eclectic approach to subject matter, scale, and medium.

To browse this impressive body of work, simply select “search the collection” on the museum's website and specify that you'd like to view pieces by Van Gogh. You can then filter these works by location, date, type, and genre, culminating in customized searches that let you explore the collection like never before.
