Science Weekend

See through the eyes of a restorer

The Van Gogh Museum took part in the Science Weekend for the first time. At first glance, science and art may appear to be a strange combination. But nothing could be further from the truth. The Van Gogh Museum manages more than 200 paintings and almost 500 drawings by Vincent van Gogh. In order to preserve the collection well for future generations and to pass on the stories by and about Van Gogh, scientists at the museum perform a great deal of research. This is conducted by art historians and restorers, together with other researchers of the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands, Shell Netherlands and Delft University of Technology.
