Vincent van Gogh (1853 – 1890) lived in an exciting era: with the extensive and revolutionary expansion of railways in Europe the world changed rapidly and fundamentally. Van Gogh, a modern and cosmopolitan man, was in the midst of it all! The Big van Gogh Atlas follows in van Gogh’s tracks, taking us to all of the places where he lived and worked. Time traveling though his world, readers discover a wide variety of rural and urban details, thanks to the artist’s masterful works of art depicting not only the peaceful landscapes of Brabant and southern France, but also the tumult of big cities like London and Paris. Van Gogh lived in more than twenty different places and always retained a sense of curiosity and an open attitude toward the world. Based on a choice, rich selection of his paintings, sketches, and letters, the atlas tells the story of van Gogh the artist, the European, the traveler.

»Always stay in motion and love nature. Only in this way will you gain a better understanding of art. Painters understand nature, and love it. They teach us to see.«
Letter from Vincent van Gogh to his brother Theo
