I love Vincent Van Gogh! Who doesn’t? So when I was recently contact by Diana from a website called ARTSY and asked if I would give a shout out to their webpage on Vincent Van Gogh (they had seen my blog on my visit to the VMFA “Virginia Museum of Fine Art”) it was a no brainer…”YES!” Go to Vincent Van Gogh!
First a little about Artsy. Artsy’s mission is to make all the world’s art accessible to anyone with an Internet connection. (You have to do a simple registration…but this is all at NO COST!) ARTSY is an art discovery platform whose mobile apps and website are frequently described as a “Pandora for fine art.”
They are also a resource for art collecting and education. But it is so much more…what a resource! They feature over 40,000 artists, they feature galleries from all over the world (over 600). They have auctions of incredible works of art. They are an incredible resource for art. For instance if you want to know about Vincent Van Gogh, you can go to their page on Vincent Van Gogh where you can read his biography, look at his works of art (for instance I love Van Gogh’s “Sunflowers”)
But not only can you see this great masterpiece but you can also see it in the museum where it is on display (this great work is on display at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam-see it here.)
It is a great resource to keep up on the news in the art world.
On Artsy’s website you can learn all about Vincent Van Gogh…read articles about him and his works of art, learn of shows where his work is being shown and see related artists. There is much to see on this website.
Artsy does not do this on just the classic artists but they do this on thousands of artists past and present! You can easily discover new and upcoming artists! AND if you are in the market they help you collect works of art…definitely spend some time exploring this website…
