Vincent van Gogh is one of the most famous artists of all time.
A current art exhibit at Paris' Atelier des Lumières highlights the Dutch post-Impressionist painter's work, such as "The Starry Night," "Sunflowers," and "The Potato Eaters" - but not in a conventional way.
Instead of simply displaying Van Gogh's paintings in frames, the exhibit, titled "Van Gogh, la nuit étoilée" (which translates to "Van Gogh, the starry night" in English), gives visitors an immersive viewing experience by having them walk through giant, detailed digital renderings of his greatest works.
Take a tour of some of the art featured in the exhibition, which runs until December 31, 2019, below.
The Dutch post-Impressionist painter is known both for his unique style and tortured psyche.
While we can't enter Van Gogh's mind, this exhibit allows people to come close by stepping into his most famous works of art.
The exhibit helps visitors explore some of the more than 2,000 pictures Van Gogh painted during the last 10 years of his life.
The exhibition features work spanning Van Gogh's relatively short artistic career.
Van Gogh's "Portrait of Dr. Gachet" is one of his most renowned portraits aside from those of himself. Beyond acting as Van Gogh's muse, Dr. Paul Gachet was also the artistic genius' caretaker. Theo Van Gogh placed his brother in Gachet's care shortly after Vincent left the mental asylum where he'd painted "The Starry Night."
In 1884, he painted the "Head of a Young Peasant with Pipe" as well as multiple other portraits of peasants.
Van Gogh was not a conventionally successful artist while he was alive and spent much of his life relying on the charity of others to get by. For that reason, Van Gogh did not have the money to pay for portrait models, nor was he often commissioned to paint portraits professionally, so he tended to used himself as a muse.
Painted in 1885, "The Potato Eaters" is considered Van Gogh's first great work of art.
Van Gogh painted "The Starry Night," one of his most famous paintings, while living at the asylum of Saint-Paul-de-Mausole in Saint Rémy, France, in 1889.
Van Gogh's "Sunflowers" series is also high on the list of the artist's most well-known works. During his time in Arles, a city in southern France, in 1888 and 1889, Van Gogh painted five large canvases of sunflowers in a vase using three shades of yellow, according to the Van Gogh Museum.
Van Gogh painted "Irises" in 1889, a year prior to his death.
Van Gogh painted "Oleanders," the portrait on the right, in 1888.
You can visit the "Van Gogh, la nuit étoilée" exhibit at Paris' L'Atelier des Lumières until December 31, 2019.
