Virtually Visit Van Gogh Museum!
Considered among the greatest artists of all-time, Vincent Van Gogh was not appreciated in his own time. Dealing with psychosis and depression, it is believed Van Gogh may have had Bipolar disorder which could have helped inspire the ranges of his paintings. Following his death, Van Gogh's work became increasingly more famous and his nephew thought that his works should be preserved and show in the best possible conditions. Due to this, he worked to help create the Van Gogh Museum, which we are lucky enough to enjoy today!
Take your time and zoom in and out on various works of art in the Van Gogh Museum. While there isn't an individual picture of each painting, you are able to zoom in on paintings around the focus of other pictures, so don't miss out!
Looking to learn more about Vincent Van Gogh? The website at the link above gives an in-depth view on his life, art styles and in-depth analysis of some of his most famous works of art.
