In the Picture
Now on - May 24, 2020

Selfie-culture is older than you might think. Long before smartphones and instant filters, artists like Vincent van Gogh were using the age-old medium of portraiture to convey, accentuate, and obscure parts of the self in ways that are strikingly similar to how people today use selfies to represent identity and accrue the cultural capital of 'likes'.

In the Picture is an exploration of Van Gogh's famous self-portraits. These portraits invite viewers to think about this intersection of image and identity; what is shown, what is not, and what these reveal to us about the selfhood that transcends the technology of any given era.

World-famous self-portraits from the Dutch master's oeuvre, alongside other seminal works like Edward Munch's Self-Portrait in Hell, Francis Bacon's Homage to Van Gogh, and Thérèse Schwartze's Portrait of Lizzy Ansingh make up some of the 75 works on show at this fascinating exhibition. Do yourself a favor and check it out!


The Van Gogh Museum houses the world's largest collection of Van Gogh's artwork. This ticket, valid for a specific timeslot, is the only way to get in fast. See the largest collection of Van Gogh's paintings, plus works by many of his contemporaries, and trace his fascinating development as an artist.

The permanent collection of Van Gogh's works in the museum displays over 200 of his items, including his serene landscapes, beautiful still lifes and compelling drawings and letters. Seen together, they cast a revealing light on his extraordinary life. Don't miss his legendary painting Sunflowers and his eccentric self-portraits.

The museum also showcases works by some of Van Gogh's contemporaries — including Gauguin and Monet — that put his paintings into a broader context. Besides the permanent collection the museum also exhibits seasonal expositions, which show various aspects of 19th-century art history.
