Developed in close collaboration with the Van Gogh Museum, written by the museum’s former chief curator dr. Fred Leeman, this tablet version of audio-biography provides you with a highly accessible and lively expert account of Van Gogh’s life.
Helen Mirren narrates the story of Vincent’s struggle for recognition, and his existential doubts about the value of success. Vincent’s quest to live an authentic, artistic, life is an endeavor that speaks to our shared human uncertainties and strengths. Here, for the first time, the artist’s marketing acumen, his protracted struggle for recognition, and his ultimate refusal of that same recognition are put center-stage. The interactive stroyline allows you to reflect on Van Gogh’s work while listening, and illustrate in lavish detail how his oeuvre was catapulted to ever greater fame after his tragically early death. Taken together, the audio & art illustrations lets you follow Van Gogh’s challenging ascent from a late and unpromising start to the heights of his current reputation.
