EARLY WORKS AT THE "OTHER" VAN GOGH MUSEUM

Do you know about the "other" Van Gogh museum near Amsterdam?

Helene Kröller-Müller, German by birth but married to successful Dutch businessman Anton Kröller, amassed a collection of over 11,500 art objects between 1907 and 1922. This makes her collection one of the largest private collections of the 20th century. One of her favorite artists was Vincent van Gogh...she was an early admirer of his paintings when his work were not very well known. She became the owner of more van Gogh paintings than anyone other than the van Gogh family itself, nearly 100 paintings and over 180 drawings. 

The Kröller-Müller Museum is about an hour's train ride from Amsterdam, located in the town of Otterlo in the middle of the Hoge Veluwe National Park and is home to some of van Gogh's most famous and beloved masterpieces.  Let's start with some of his early works when he was still painting with the darker palette:
