Falling Into Van Gogh's Bedroom

Welcome Home
Seward Johnson (2003)
In 1888 and 1889, Vincent Van Gogh finished a series of three paintings that he called The Bedroom.  It shows the artists room at 2 Place Lamartine in Arles, France, which is better known as The Yellow House.

This is the second of the three paintings.  It was completed in September 1889 and was the inspiration for a three dimensional, full room sculpture created by Seward Johnson.  It's called Welcome Home.  It's made out of painted wood and plaster, and it makes you feel like you've fallen into the canvas and into the world created in the painting.

This is so freakin' awesome!
