Vincent Van Gogh painted the Sunflowers series at the end of the nineteenth century 89. The five pieces are now in museums all over the world. Never before has it been possible to unite the pieces at one exhibition.
But now Vincent’s great-grand-nephew, Willem van Gogh, narrates a new 360-degree video exhibition that includes all five paintings in the same place. He describes the history of each piece and significances in detail.
This experience launched last week via the Facebook pages of several participating museums: The National Gallery in London, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, Tokyo’s Seiji Togo Memorial Museum, and Art Neue Pinakothek in Munich.
Those with a Gear VR can watch the exhibit via the Oculus store from August 14th onwards. Art fans will certainly enjoy this video experience, as well as the broadcasts from partnering museums. Gear VR owners can furthermore experience Night Cafe, a VR interpretation of a Van Gogh masterpiece, which is also available on the Oculus store.
