Vincent’s passion for pipe smoking
One would think that all aspects of the work of the famous Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh have already been studied, but no one ever looked at the pipes he smoked. In the impressive collection of the Amsterdam Pipe Museum we discovered the pipes that match with seventeen of Vincent’s drawings and paintings. Among these there are six self portraits, in which we can see that Vincent, ardent smoker as he was, chooses other pipes in Holland than when living in France. A virtual exhibition on our website offers more background information, as well about his pipes as on his love for tobacco that he displays in his letters.
