It enters into the mind and life of the great artist, and hence sheds light on the creative processes behind his masterpieces which were created during his days of struggle with mental illness, anxiety and inspiration. This is not a forensic biography, but rather scenes based on Vincent Van Gogh’s letters, which reveal unknown details about the last days of an immortal artist.

The Museum’s building which was built but well-known Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer is regarded as one of the world’s most renowned and iconic buildings.
