    More than 200 paintings by Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh, and nearly every sketch, print, etching, and piece of correspondence he ever produced, are housed here. The city-centre Van Gogh Museum has the world's largest collection of the artist's work.

    The galleries of the permanent collection are divided into three sections, one devoted to Van Gogh himself, a second featuring other artists, with a third on the history of the collection. Van Gogh's art is organised chronologically, each section on a different phase of his life and work, coinciding with his move to a new location: Holland, Paris, Arles, Saint-Rémy and Auvers-sur-Oise.

    The museum consists of two buildings. The main structure, designed by Gerrit Rietveld, opened in 1973 and the Exhibition Wing by Kisho Kurokawa was completed in 1999. It is a light, white building of curving walls, with a pleasant café on the ground floor.
