It’s not every day that Van Gogh’s The Sunflowers arrives in Dubai. Although this is an exact reproduction made using a highly technical 3D printer, it still holds instrinsic value. An exhibition of nine such reproductions opens later this week at Fairmont, The Palm Jumeirah in Dubai and limited editions of the famous paintings are on sale for Dh125,000. The exhibition is marking the 125th anniversary of Van Gogh’s death, who died aged 37 in 1890.
* A full interview with Vincent Willem Van Gogh, the great grandnephew of the late painter will follow in The National’s Arts & Life section.
