Amsterdam is just as famous for its artists and museums as it is for its canals.  Inside the Van Gogh Museum is over 200 of the post-impressionist master’s paintings, include The Potato Eaters and Sunflowers. Some of the most significant artifacts are the hand-written letters between Vincent and his brother, Theo. Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890) is one of the Netherlands’ most famous artists.
