Van Gogh Museum Editions - Vincent's Sketchbooks and more

online presence

Vincent van Gogh is best known for his colourful paintings, but he was also an accomplished draughtsman. Of the many sketchbooks that Van Gogh must have owned, only four from his years as an artist have stood the test of time. These sketchbooks are all part of the Van Gogh Museum collection, and are very rarely put on public display due to their vulnerability. The Van Gogh Museum therefore decided to collaborate with Uitgeverij Komma to publish limited edition facsimiles of the four sketchbooks, which were used in the period 1884-1890, together with two cahiers, several loose sketches and a letter.
