This past Tuesday, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte ordered a second lockdown in the Netherlands to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. The measure has once again forced the shuttering of many of the country’s top museums. However, many institutions such as the Kröller-Müller Museum and the Van Gogh Museum in Otterlo and Amsterdam, respectively, have looked to online resources to share their expansive holdings to interested viewers.

Dutch institutions such as the Kröller-Müller Museum, the Van Gogh Museum, the Groninger Museum, the Rijksmuseum, the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, and more have teamed up to create a massive database featuring over 1,000 works on paper and paintings by the iconic Post-Impressionist, Vincent Van Gogh. The digital project features early paintings and drawings by Van Gogh of the working class to his later compositions portraying expressive landscapes.

Viewers may also access technical information about each work including provenance, reports on restorations and any damages. Several works also feature exclusive quotes by the artist’s family members and other artists. Half of the works in Van Gogh’s prolific oeuvre are currently on shown in the database. Visit Van Gogh Worldwide’s website for more information.
