The Vincent Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam hosts an exceptionally well-designed website that features almost 1,000 works by the artist along with hundreds of works by other artists. One highlight of the museum's website is the stories feature, which invites readers to learn more about the artist through a variety of archival materials, which includes letters, photographs, and documents. Of course, these stories also incorporate Van Gogh's artwork. One story, Brotherly Love, traces Van Gogh's close relationship with his brother Theo. This story incorporates a number of poignant quotations from letters between the brothers (in one letter, Vincent wrote, "- do let's continue to support one another and receive brotherly love") in addition to paintings and archival materials. Another story, In Daubigny's footsteps, examines how landscape artist Charles-Francois Daubigny influenced Van Gogh's work.
