Today we thought we’d share some more of the visual displays at The Lume: Van Gogh interactive show at Newfields (formerly Indianapolis Museum of Art). This is the link to yesterday’s post.
The video above is a short one, but it does give a real flavor of the types of visuals that were presented in the digital presentation. This is one of Van Gogh’s self portraits.
Many of the panels in the presentation were of the many portraits that Van Gogh painted, both self portraits and of other people. He was very prolific with his portraiture works. The one above with the straw hat was painted in 1887.
The whole experience is not an end all biography of Van Gogh. Several panels provide short paragraphs similar to chapter titles, preceding examples of his works in the referenced time frame. There are lots of other sources of detailed information, including detailed descriptions/stories about specific paintings. It is a marvelous visual and auditory experience, and in our opinion a wonderful way to spend an afternoon at the museum.
