It's not every day you get to sit in Vincent van Gogh's bedroom.
But now through June 27, you can do just that — and take in more than 50 of his masterworks — as part of the new exhibit, "Vincent van Gogh: His Life in Art," at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.
Organized by the MFAH in collaboration with the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, and the Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo, the exhibit spotlights everything from landscapes to portraits and spans his life as an artist, from early sketches to final paintings.
“This exhibition will offer visitors a vivid portrait of Van Gogh’s evolution as an artist,” MFAH Director Gary Tinterow said in a statement. “We are grateful to the Van Gogh and Kröller-Müller museums for lending so many of these rarely traveled masterworks from their collections for this exclusive presentation here in Houston.”
Perhaps one of the biggest draws, especially for families with children, is the companion exhibit, "Van Gogh Up Close," which allows visitors to interact with the artist and his work, from stepping into "The Starry Night" to painting their own sunflowers to snapping a photo inside his famous Arles bedroom.
