A truly amazing app
This app is absolutely wonderful. Truly one of the best art apps I've ever seen. An essential app for those interested in the work of Vincent Van Gogh. The ability to see various versions of the work and xrays along with the brief but insightful commentary is very enlightening.
This is one of the most fascinating apps I've seen. It elegantly reveals information about many aspects of Van Gogh's paintings in a delightful, hands-on way. I can't stop exploring every detail and eagerly await the next version to learn about more paintings and techniques. Thank you to the Van Gogh Museum.
