Van Gogh Alive
The paintings and drawings by Vincent Willem van Gogh (1853-1890) are presented in this multimedia show. The project tours around the world and can now be seen in Zurich. In 1880, at the age of 27, Vincent turned to art, after a short career as an art dealer and a study in theology. He was mainly inspired by the Impressionism and Post-Impressionism movements of the 19th Century. In only ten years, he produced more than 2 000 works of art, consisting of around 930 paintings and 1 100 drawings and sketches. The show is an experience for the senses by the combination of light, colour and music. In large-scale projections, his most famous works are brought to life.
