Vincent Van Gogh was a 19th Century Dutch post-impressionist artist with a style all his own. He about 1,000 drawings, 150 watercolors, 10 watercolors, 9 lithographs, an etching, and over 900 paintings.

This exhibition featured projections covering the walls, floors and ceilings – with light, color and whirling shapes.
