“A must have for art lovers.”

“The most important feature [of Van Gogh’s Dream] is its simplicity, its subdued graphics, its rare and well-dosed interactive features. It uses the iPad's stunning possibilities when it makes sense and when it serves the content.”
The Huffington Post, 30/11/2011


The Van Gogh’s Dream application allows you to discover or to rediscover the painter, his art, his drawings, his letters and his technique. Furthermore, the app focuses on the man, with his certainties and his doubts though 7 fascinating chapters:
Van Gogh’s Dream, The Man, The Technique, The Auvers Paintings, The Letters, Van Gogh for the Masses and Flowers for Van Gogh.
Van Gogh’s Dream is an original, fully documented and captivating account, with amazing interactive features. It provides in-depth insight in Van Gogh’s art and thoughts, in a fashion never seen before.

You’ll discover a complete catalogue of the 80 Auvers paintings, his last letter to his brother Theo in its original version, in transcription and in translation. You can even listen to an audio version. Numerous testimonies by reknowned experts and art historians are recorded in HD video to enrich the experience even more.

The Van Gogh’s Dream app is a full immersion in the life and work of one of the greatest painters who ever saw the light of day.

Wonderful art


I have had this app for a couple of years and go back to it often to wonder again at Van Gogh’s genius. Unfortunately it has not been updated to work with IOS11, which has a negative impact on my iPad. So please update it - for future art lovers.

thrilled me, this app


I never knew Van Gogh had painted to many paintings, had worked with perspective, and had mooched off his brother in the early years, in order to paint. Fascinating app, and 85 of his paintings are revealed. He painted thousands, he was a oil painting machine! Best ten bucks I ever spent on art, hands down. This isn't a little cheapie dollar app, it's got a LOT of content and someone really worked months and months to assemble it. WOW WOW, thanks so much. Now do one on a couple of other fav painters, Renior and Monet perhaps?? I'll buy them in a heartbeat.

A dream come true


I love this app – although it’s really much more than an app; it’s an immersion into the life of the world’s most beloved artist. You get Vincent’s letters, his sketches vis-à-vis the corresponding paintings, insights into his technique, film critiques, and some beautiful videos. There’s also a very touching section on the inn where Van Gogh spent his final days. Lots and lots of great content. Well worth the price -- especially since it supports the "dream" of bringing one of Van Gogh's paintings back home.
