The Liesbos still exists and can be visited. The forest contains marked walking trails.

Van Gogh in


  1. 30 Apr. 1881
     - 27 Nov. 1881

Vincent often sketched in the Liesbos forest near Breda and probably made the drawing Edge of a Wood there. When his friend and fellow artist Anthon van Rappard came to visit in June 1881, he too made several drawings in the Liesbos, but they were lost with time.
