The Van Gogh Museum has been collecting French fin de siecle prints since 2000 when the museum acquired 800 prints from a German private collection. Since then the collection has been actively expanded through purchases, and now runs to about 1,800 prints. The special collection is not often displayed in the museum galleries due to light sensitivity but an exhibition is planned in 2017.You can explore the interactive collection in the meantime.
