Reunited and on display together for the first time: Vincent Van Gogh's 15 paintings of olive groves.

Van Gogh was 36 when he plunged into painting olive groves in the South of France. The trees surrounded the asylum where he stayed for a year because of psychological complaints and their gnarly shapes reflected his artistic and mental journey.

Nature offered Van Gogh refuge from the asylum and he wanted to express that feeling in his olive grove paintings.

Fascinated by the ever-changing colour of the olive groves, he painted them over and over, experimenting with various approaches and even working on his subject at different times of the day. The artist himself considered his paintings of olive trees amongst the best of his work made in the South of France.

Van Gogh Museum

4.8 / 5 (6711 reviews)

The Van Gogh Museum displays over 200 of Vincent van Gogh's works, including landscapes, still lifes and drawings, and letters. By displaying them alongside works from Van Gogh's contemporaries, viewers get real insights into his life and work.

The museum itself is comprised of two buildings. The main building, designed by Gerrit Rietveld, Joan van Dillen, and J. van Tricht, opened in 1973. The second building, designed by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa was added in 1999. Located in Amsterdam's Museumplein (along with the Stedelijk and Rijksmuseum), the Van Gogh Museum is one of the most-visited museums in the Netherlands.

Amsterdam

Rijksmuseum

The National Museum of the Netherlands, or the Rijksmuseum, has been housed on this location since 1885. It recently underwent a ten-year, €375 million renovation. The Rijksmuseum has over 5,000 paintings (including Rembrandt's Night Watch) and has an emphasis on the Dutch Golden Age. But it's not just paintings – there are sculptures, antiques, collections of clothing and weapons, and one of the finest actively-used libraries you'll ever see. The Dutch architect P.J.H. Cuypers designed this elegant building, and even put himself in the design as one of the statues on the roof.

The Heineken Experience is located in the original Heineken Brewery. Gerard Adriaan Heineken bought this building back in 1863 when it was the De Hooiberg brewery. He then turned it towards the production of his eponymous beer. The building remained a brewery all the way up to 1988. It was then that it became a museum (and hotspot for Heineken consumption). Located in the vibrant neighborhood of De Pijp, the Heineken Experience is ideally situated for a canal cruise, and some city exploration that takes you away from the hustle and bustle of Dam Square. Since 2001, it's been the world-famous Heineken Experience. After a year-long update and redesign in 2008, the Heineken Experience is more Heineken-y and Experience-y than ever before.

Moco Museum

The Modern Contemporary (Moco) Museum Amsterdam is housed inside Villa Alsberg, a 1904 townhouse in the middle of Amsterdam Museumplein. High-profile guest curators and exhibitions highlight some of the modern world's best contributors to the art world. Eduard Cuypers, cousin of Rijksmuseum designer Pierre Cuypers, designed the townhouse, making it a sight to see in itself. But the work inside is absolutely phenomenal; two current attractions showcase the work of street art activist Banksy, and pop artist extraordinaire, Andy Warhol.
