Vincent Van Gogh’s Nuenen

Posted on: March 18, 2013 by Nataliya Volosovych | No Comments

In spring of 2011 I went to Nuenen – a little village not far from Eindhoven. This small place became known mostly due to the fact that Vincent Van Gogh lived and worked here in 1883-1885. This is his Dutch period of dark in color and mostly rural scenes from everyday life of Dutch peasants that he was so fascinated by. After visiting this place now I know why he chose those gloomy colors. Don’t get me wrong – the place is charming but looking back at my photos and Vincent’s paintings I see lots of similarities. No matter how I tried to make photos lighter and more cheerful it just didn’t happen!
I am proud to say that I stepped on the same streets Van Gogh was stepping; I saw same windmills and fields he saw and depicted in his work.

    Very cool! I love how you compared today's world with Van Gogh's world! Both visions (yours and his) are phenomenal! Livica
