A new database called Van Gogh Worldwide gives users access to provenances, technical information, archival material and more on 1,000 works on paper and paintings by the famous post-impressionist. The database, which was launched on Thursday, is a collaboration between the Kröller-Müller Museum, the Van Gogh Museum and the RKD-Netherlands Institute for Art History and the Cultural Heritage Laboratory of the Agency for Cultural Heritage of the Netherlands.

Currently, the database holds information on roughly half of Van Gogh’s works, from his early paintings and drawings, which focus on the working class, to his later, more expressive landscapes. In some cases, users can look behind the works to see their verses and get technical information, such as: B. Reports of restorations and possible damage. In some cases related quotes from van Gogh’s correspondence with family members and other artists are also included.
Van Gogh Worldwide currently only includes works by Dutch institutions such as the Kröller-Müller Museum, Van Gogh Museum, Groninger Museum, Rijksmuseum, Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and others. However, there are plans to make research on works by international museums available. About half of the artist’s known works are currently registered with Van Gogh Worldwide.
