Van Gogh Museum

We’ve been supporting the world-famous Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam since 2015, and we signed a new partnership in 2023. As a key sponsor of the gallery, our joint mission is to preserve the work of Vincent van Gogh and the art of his time, while making it as accessible and inspirational to as many people as possible.

    Matthew Wong | Vincent van Gogh

    Within the space of just a few years Matthew Wong developed a highly personal style, using intense colours to paint imaginative landscapes. Van Gogh was a great source of inspiration for Wong. His influence is unmistakable, in terms of use of colour. The current exhibition (until 1 September) explores the artistic and personal connection between the two artists in more detail. Wong saw his own life reflected in that of Van Gogh, and once said: ‘I see myself in him. The impossibility of belonging in this world.’

    Creating sustainable content

    The Van Gogh Museum is one of the world’s leading art museums with an outstanding permanent collection and world-class exhibitions. Our renewed partnership focuses on the creation of sustainable content, by creating digital programming around the museum’s wonderful exhibitions. At the same time, I look forward to continuing to inspire our clients and colleagues with tours, workshops and special events at the museum.

    In this film, by Award-winning designer Christian Borstlap, collages of historical photographs and old postcards tell the story of the changing landscape that so appealed to painters. This film is supported by Van Lanschot Kempen, and was also screened in the exhibition.
