All five Sunflowers paintings by Vincent van Gogh were recreated in a virtual environment for visitors to view them in one museum

By using VR, Facebook brought together all five of Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers paintings to hang alongside one another in a virtual museum—something never physically done before. Normally, these five pieces of art reside in different museums throughout the world. A viewer can go through the gallery through a 360 degree video posted to five of the museum’s Facebook pages or download the video from the Oculus store. The narrator in the video is Willen van Gogh, the great grandson of Van Gogh’s brother.

 On Monday, August 14, Facebook aired a live broadcast with each of the five galleries hosting the real Sunflowers paintings to discuss the artworks and Van Gogh. The museums, The National Gallery, Van Gogh Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Neue Pinakothek and Seiji Togo Memorial Sompo Japan Nipponkoa Museum of Art streamed the video from their respective Facebook pages.
