Vincent van Gogh painted various versions of the renowned Sunflowers. Five of these paintings are currently on display at museums located all around the world, but they will now be united on Facebook.
Scattered all over the globe
In 1888 and 1889, Van Gogh painted one of the best-known paintings of all time: Sunflowers. Five of these paintings can now be found at international museums; one version is on display at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, while the others can be found in London, Munich, Philadelphia and Tokyo. For the first time ever, the five works are brought together in a digital exhibition.
Five Sunflowers united
Five consecutive live streams were held on Facebook, in which international museum directors and curators introduced the version of Sunflowers at their museum.
In this virtual gallery, the five versions of Sunflowers are brought together. Art lovers from all over the world can rotate 360 degrees to view each painting individually, or enjoy a guided tour that will introduce the iconic works. The exhibition is accompanied by commentary from Willem van Gogh, great-grandson of Vincent’s brother Theo, who relays his personal memories of the paintings.
