  • Q&A Throughout the Tour

  • Discover the Road That Vincent Walked During His Life
  • Saturday, 3/27 at 1 pm EDT

Vincent van Gogh, who sold only one painting out of the 900 plus paintings that he has gifted to humanity, was probably the biggest loser in the art world during his short but intense life. His representation of the starry night (1889) has moved countless souls and inspired other artists and writers such as Don Mclean and Irving Stone.

However, despite of his tormented life, Vincent has created touching artworks that consoled not only himself but also millions of others - “Art is to console those who are broken by life.” To understand how extraordinary his art is, one must look to understand the man and his feelings. Only by examining and appreciating the stories behind his paintings, can one hope to benefit from the consolation, inspiration, and deep connection with humanity in the fullest extent.

Vincent once said he “wanted to touch people with my art, I wanted them to say ‘he feels deeply, he feels tenderly.’” This virtual tour attempts to discuss the road that Vincent has chosen for his life, which is nothing out of the conventional, as he declared - “Normality is a paved road, it’s comfortable to walk, but no flowers grow on it.”

This one-hour interactive virtual tour includes:

  • A Live Licensed Expert Guide

  • Question and Answer throughout the tour

  • Polls and Interactive Chat Function

  • A Detailed Tour and Explanation of Van Gogh's Life and Works

Amazing Tour - knows so much

This was a fabulous tour, full of interesting titbits and stories, and it's obvious that Josephine knows her subject inside-out. Really feel like I learned a lot and the time flew by.
