AMSTERDAM.- Director Axel Rüger welcomed the 200,000th visitor to the exhibition Van Gogh and the colours of the night in the Van Gogh Museum. The show, which opened to the public on 13 February, has gained enthusiastic press reviews both nationally and internationally. The New York Times wrote "Gain new insight into one of the 19th century's most influential artists with this unprecedented exhibition" while The International Herald Tribune concluded "A dazzling show charts Van Gogh's metamorphosis." Especially for this exhibition the museum has extended its opening hours, in addition to the Friday night the museum is also open until 22 hours on Thursdays and Saturdays. Main sponsor of Van Gogh and the colours of the night is telecom and internet company KPN.

Van Gogh and the colours of the night is the first exhibition to focus on the evening and night-time scenes of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890). Van Gogh imbued his crepuscular scenes with a wealth of associations, heartfelt emotion and poetic atmosphere. Many of the ‘night works’ on show have since become real icons. Altogether the exhibition comprises 32 paintings, 19 works on paper and five sketches contained in his letters. Van Gogh and the colours of the night is on view until 7 June 2009.

In the Netherlands tickets may also be ordered via T 0900 60 60 700 (€ 0.45/min). The tickets are sold per time slot and also entitle the holder to view the museum’s permanent collection.
