The 5 most surprising works in the museum quarter in Amsterdam

1) Van Gogh's Last Painting

Wheatfield with Crows (1890) was long considered Vincent van Gogh’s last painting before he committed suicide. It depicts a dead end, a darkening sky, a harbinger of things to come. Now experts consider Tree Roots (1890) a likelier candidate. They say his death explains the irregular, unfinished appearance of the painting. Both works are on display in the museum.
