"What a splendid thing watercolour is to express atmosphere and distance, so that the figure is surrounded by air and can breathe in it, as it were."

Vincent van Gogh
Letter 163
c. 18 December 1881


Vincent van Gogh produced 147 watercolours over the course of his career and these works distinguish themselves as a vibrant and important part of Van Gogh's overall oeuvre. Van Gogh's use of colour is, as always, marvelous and his watercolour works stand out as a remarkable achievement in the course of his constantly evolving art.

In addition, for the visitor's convenience I include a Search page in order to help find the right title as quickly and easily as possible.

Note: The watercolours are also displayed in a thumbnail version.
