The work of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) was dismissed during his lifetime, with his genius not being recognized until after his death. His painting style changed drastically throughout his life, and in his final ten years, he created over 2,000 pictures. These pictures can be found in collections all over the world.
In the Atelier des Lumières in Paris, France, visitors can immerse themselves in van Gogh’s numerous paintings during the new digital “Van Gogh, La Nuit Étoilée” exhibition. Vincent van Gogh’s work is projected on all of the surfaces of the Atelier and allows visitors to explore the artist’s oeuvre, including well-known pieces such as The Potato Eaters (1885), Sunflowers (1888), and Bedroom in Arles (1889).
Van Gogh’s Starry Night (1889) is one of his most recognizable paintings and is also featured in the new exhibition. From the artist’s early years to his mature years, visitors can explore van Gogh’s sunny landscapes, nightscapes, still lives, and portraits. Visitors can retrace van Gogh’s intense life experiences, including his sojourns in Neunen, Arles, Paris, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, and Auvers-sur-Oise.
Known for his palette’s chromatic intensity, his use of impasto in his work, and the powerful strokes of his brushes, this Dutch painter’s expressive paintings invite visitors into his highly emotional and turbulent inner world. The immersive exhibit, running through December 31, 2019, takes visitors on a journey through the evolution of van Gogh’s works.
In the center of the Atelier, inside a tank, lies a new educational device to complement the exhibition. A selection of van Gogh’s most famous paintings is featured here, alongside commentaries about his work and the museum in which it is exhibited. This new production has been created by Gianfranco Iannuzzi, Renato Gatto, and Massimiliano Siccardi, and is produced by Culturespaces. The exhibition features the musical collaboration of Luca Longobardi.
