Featured in App Store "What's Hot"

Van Gogh's life of art was short but splendid. He had left so many masterpieces for the world, but how much do we know about him?

As a biography, we use an interactive way to illustrate Vincent's life, especially the ten years he devoted to art. From these stories and artworks, we will rediscover Van Gogh, he is not any more a "crazy" artist, but a poet yearning for life, and love. We hope to achieve this by providing insightful analysis of his work, selected letters from Van Gogh himself as well as stories.

What is the story behind the famous sunflowers? Who is Paul Gauguin and what happened between the two artists? How did Japanese ukiyo-e art influence Van Gogh's work? How could reimagine the famous Starry Night?

All these could be found in our team's half-year endeavor!

Visually stunning Vincent!

Loving this app. Paintings look great on iPad. They are presented in a way to help you see the progression of his artistic talent, his use of color, how he was influenced by other artists and the other styles of the day. Paintings and drawings are grouped so that you see different works relating to the same topic or site. Letters to his brother Theo are mixed in and really add a lot to understanding Van Gogh's thoughts. The navigation is intuitive and beautiful and a compliment to the entire package. I have seen many of these works in Europe and America at the museums listed and feel that this app is helping me appreciate the works even more. Kudos to the developer(s).

Really good story / painting mix

This is a REALLY good introduction to Van Gough's life and works.
It starts with a brief overview and that might have fooled some into thinking that's all it is. If you take a moment to figure out the slightly tricky navigation through the sections, though, it goes into a depth well beyond what most people ever learn about this amazing artist and his times. I'd love to see more of these about other artists or scientists and historical figures! Good job!

Excellent App!!

An absolutely amazing and informative app! I have only begun to explore this very well-made app and am very impressed by it. It is not just a collection of paintings, but a multimedia presentation including including paintings, animation and even background music. I shall enjoy experiencing and learning new things about Vincent. Thanks to Zenda for this wonderful app! Get it today while it is free -- it is well worth it!
