Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers series are among his most famous works and in this film, the Van Gogh Museum took a new and revealing look at the five publicly-owned versions of these paintings rarely — if ever — seen all in the same place. In fact, all five paintings are now considered to be in such a delicate state that there will never be a show with all five alongside one another ever again.
Each of these paintings is different and each of them has its own unique story to tell. This documentary gives us all an incredible virtual way to view the paintings while learning about them and van Gogh.
Director David Bickerstaff has also created virtual exhibitions for Degas, Canaletto, Bosch, Monet and many more. While many of us can’t travel to the world’s museums, films like this give us a real way to see art in the only way that we can.
You can learn more about Sunflowers and see where it’s playing, as well as download or purchase other films in the series at the official site.
