Let Vincent guide you on a journey through his life and art, in his own words…
Yours, Vincent is a unique application provided by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. The application uses the artist's own letters to explore the life and times of one of the world's most famous and misunderstood men.
We know him as a troubled genius who died young and unrecognised in his lifetime. Here for the first time you can enter the mind of Vincent himself and discover his real genius.
Listen to dramatic readings of the letters, get a closer look at his early sketches, watch his style develop from the scratches of a young artist to the powerful brushstrokes that became his trademark. The application features many of Vincent's sketches and paintings from the Van Gogh Museum collection, video interviews with the museum’s letters experts and new picture galleries that showcase his art.
Yours, Vincent breathes new life into the artist and invites us into Vincent's world in a way never possible before.
Yours, Vincent is a Pentimento application created by Antenna Audio, the world's leading producer of mobile interpretation for museums and cultural attractions.
What's New in Version 1.1
Updated copyright information
This is an App that was put together with passion and love. Videos, detailed information about every aspect of his life, and quite a few of his paintings are offered up in a highly professional, elegant, and often clever manner. It's free, but would deserve 5 stars even if it cost several dollars.
Absolutely Amazing, and It's Free!!
I've become fascinated with this artist while working on a project to incorporate my cover of "Vincent," by Don McLean over a slideshow of this artist's great works. This app gives great insight into what Van Gogh thought of his art, his life, and his relationships. It's like a documentary show, and I love it. I'll pen a new word and call it an "Applidrama." Best Free app ever.
Wonderful, but not for iPad
I loved this app, until I got an iPad. I would be quite willing to pay for an iPad version, I'd probably even pay as much as $5 for it. The low resolution in the current version just doesn't make it worth bothering with.
I know it's been 2 years, but if you're still around, PLEASE make an iPad version!
