BUGABOO & Van Gogh: Where Dutch Originals Meet


Bugaboo continues to change the way parents move their kids through the world… this year exciting news: a cooperation with the Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam on a new stroller collection that reinterprets one of Van Gogh’s masterpieces.
When the Dutch painter started his career, it was a time when most artists mainly painted works that were realistic and true to nature. Van Gogh, however, experimented with perspective and human features in a way that abstracted his subjects.
Once he moved to Paris in 1886, he was inspired by Japanese imagery and Impressionist art, which heavily influenced a period of his work, including ‘Almond Blossom’ (1890), the piece which takes center stage in the limited Bugaboo Bee & Van Gogh collection.
Today,Van Gogh is one of the world’s most influential and treasured artists, but during his 19th century lifetime, his talent went largely unrecognized, except for by his brother Theo. But nevertheless… Vincent created more than 700 paintings in the last five years of his life.
His drive to put his dreams and visions on paper and canvas was almost inexhaustible. To this day, Van Gogh continues to change the way people view art and beauty… as well as his encouraging message still is: dare to dream!
