Van Gogh in

Musée Moderne

  1. 25 Nov. 1878 1885
  2. 2 Jan. 1886 1886

The Musée Moderne was one of the first places Vincent went after he arrived in Antwerp. There, he saw works including paintings by Robert Mols and Henri de Braekeleer and landscapes by César de Cock and Henri Leys. He considered most of the paintings satisfactory but saw of what he saw he considered “horrible”. He was especially interested in the way artists represented character in portraits.
