The Starry Night by Van Gogh at the Atelier des Lumières

Until 31 December 2019, wander around amidst Van Gogh’s greatest masterpieces at the Atelier des Lumières. RATP is partnering this exhibition.

The new digital exhibition at the Atelier des Lumières allows you to immerse yourself in the canvases of Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890), a genius ignored in his lifetime who turned the world of painting upside down. Using the entirety of the Atelier space, this new visual and acoustic creation retraces the intense life of the tormented artist who, during the last 10 years of his life, painted more than 2000 works that are now dispersed around the world.


The exhibition explores Van Gogh's immense body of work, which evolved radically over the years, from The Potato Eaters (1885), to Sunflowers (1888) by way of The Starry Night (1889) to Bedroom in Arles (1889). The Atelier des Lumières reveals the Dutch painter’s expressive and powerful brush strokes and lights up with the bold colours of his canvases in their unrivalled style. Sombre shades give way to warm colours. The immersive exhibition evokes Van Gogh’s inner life, at once extravagant, chaotic, and poetic, and underlines a constant dialogue between shadow and light.


L’Atelier des Lumières, 38 rue Saint-Maur, Paris 11th arrondissement, open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays open until 10 p.m.
