The Van Gogh Museum was, by far, the highest point of the journey. They managed to gather there not only almost all that Van Gogh has ever draw on a piece of anything, but, also, all things related to him – paintings of him made by others, like Gaugain, paintings of artists he appreciate or had a close relation to… in short.. all that can be associated with the great master of “pointillĂ©”.

His painting left me breathless and, if it weren’t for the big crowd of english and american art devours coming down from their large buses, I would have stayed there the whole day. It was one of them, a young stoner, I overheard explaining to one of his mates the greatness of Van Gogh art: ” It’s all about the frame, dude”.
