Touch Van Gogh

New app opens up research

The Van Gogh Museum launched the English app Touch Van Gogh, which enables users to examine Van Gogh’s paintings in great detail. The app, designed for tablets, employs multi-touch functions for users to discover information hidden beneath the paint in game style fashion at their own pace. For example, Touch Van Gogh can show how a painting looks before and after restoration, where exactly it was painted, which areas of paint have discoloured and how the composition was built up.
