Van Gogh’s Room is furnished with silence and tranquillity in a world that goes too fast. A privileged destination for millions of Van Gogh aficionados, it has moved all those who discovered the extreme sobriety of the painter who made it famous. Wouter van der Veen knows it in its finest details though his activities as a scientific director with Institut Van Gogh. He has taken dozens of pictures of the room. This is one of his finest photographs.
