Discover the art and life of Vincent van Gogh like never before and immerse yourself in this award-winning exhibition. Step into the artist’s famous painting of his bedroom, see how he dramatically depicted the wheat fields and marvel at the exhibition’s incredible audio-visual techniques.
Despite having sold only one painting in his lifetime, Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh went on to become one of the most treasured artists of all time. You can now come closer than ever before to this extraordinary man’s artwork, life and legacy through the award-winning, immersive exhibition Meet Vincent van Gogh in London. This interactive once-in-a-lifetime experience, created by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, uses cutting edge audio-visual techniques to take visitors on an unforgettable journey in Van Gogh’s footsteps.
You'll see how the artist expressed his many emotions through heavy brush strokes and dramatic colors, step into life-size reproductions of Van Gogh’s paintings, come face to face with the Yellow House and learn about the science behind Vincent’s beautiful and intense paintings. You’ll receive a pair of headsets to wear throughout this self-guided exhibition. Narrated by the artist himself (thanks to the hundreds of letters he wrote to his brother Theo), the story takes you through each of the exhibition’s six sections and serves as a wonderful insight into his thoughts.
Rather than presenting Vincent’s original artworks, Meet Vincent van Gogh is a highly immersive, comprehensive and emotional look into van Gogh’s creative process. It also reflects on the personal challenges Vincent encountered during his short life – mental illness, the nature of friendship and creativity and the search for identity. This exhibition is both a narrative and celebration of Vincent van Gogh, showcasing the artist’s highs and lows and helping visitors meet the man behind the myth.
