Vans and the Van Gogh Museum proudly present an artistically designed collection in which a number of Van Gogh’s masterpieces have been incorporated into iconic Vans Classics and premium garments. Vincent van Gogh is perhaps one of the most famous and influential post-impressionist painters in the history of Western Art. Van Gogh is best known for his work that is powerful in beauty, emotion and color and also brings his personal expression to life. He has made more than 2100 works of art during his decades-long career, and Vans worked closely with the Van Gogh Museum Licensing team to select four major works that fit the creative ethos of Vans designs and a personal match with the family history of the artist.
The collection shows the development of Van Gogh’s painting style with a self-portrait on which he created himself with clear, unmixed colors and using complementary colors by means of a new technique to create depth and intensity.
The Vans x Van Gogh Museum collection is available worldwide from the 3rd of August. The Van Gogh Museum will dedicate the profit of this project to the preservation of Vincent van Gogh’s legacy and art collection, with the aim of keeping the work accessible to future generations.
