Brief description of the initiative:
This fascinating project was carried out by the Van Gogh Museum on the Van Gogh letters and it was an incredible opportunity given to an entire community of researchers and enthusiasts.
Objectives of the initiative:
Thanks to the digitalisation and free internet access of the research, it is now possible to read the entire archive of letters of the painter in their original version and in translation. It was truly exciting to see the reproduction of the original letters and their iconographic references.
Brief assessment of the initiative’s results:
The project is an example to the world of how effective it is to diffuse and spread significant items of cultural heritage, contributing to the safeguard of the original autograph material.
