Preserving the Spirit of Van Gogh

« Become a patron of Vincent and Theo van Gogh »

Today, in partnership with the town of Auvers-sur-Oise, the Institut Van Gogh is embarking on a campaign to preserve the graves of the Van Gogh brothers and make the cemetery of Auvers-sur-Oise, which receives more than 200,000 visitors every year, a more secure and hospitable place.

In connection with this project, the surroundings of the church of Notre Dame d’Auvers – as immortalized by Vincent van Gogh’s famous painting – will be redesigned and enhanced, as well as the lane going from the church to the cemetery. In partnership with VISA and thanks to the technology of the HEOH Company, VISA cardholders can make “contactless” mini-gifts (€2 - €20) at a terminal on the landing of the “House of Van Gogh.”

Patrons who wish to help the cause in a more substantial way or who do not have a VISA card can contribute to the following specific parts of the project, as listed below:
  • Drainage system of the cemetery
  • Installation of a shelter and toilets
  • Installation of lighting and a secure (lockable) entrance
  • Redesign and landscaping of the surroundings of Notre Dame d’Auvers
