People love scratch cards, posters and famous works of art – so why not put them all together? Today Is Art Day combines all three in their Vincent van Gogh Scratch poster, which allows you to record the Van Gogh paintings that you have seen in museums around the world.
The poster contains 40 tiny renderings of van Gogh's most notable works, each covered with a thin layer of foil that you can use to scrape off with a coin. The main purpose is to help you keep track of the masterpieces you have actually seen. With a size of 17 x 24 inches you can also solve the problem of how to fill the empty area on the wall that you have been staring at for too long.
The images are divided into the following categories: self-portraits, early works, places, portraits, still lifes and nature. So you will never again confuse Still Life: Vase with Fifteen Sunflowers with Still Life: Vase with Twelve Sunflowers . We recommend that you keep this solicitation sheet anywhere and consult it before scratching a spot, as van Gogh has titled several paintings, similar or even identical ̵
It is true that you need to travel a bit to complete the bucket list, but a glance at this list of museums where the paintings are located shows that some houses contain several works. For example, after a trip to Paris' Musée d & # 39; Orsay, you can view a self-portrait The Auvers Church Scrape off Gachet . , Portrait of Eugene Boch and Starry Night over the Rhone . And you can scrape off 15 of the 40 works without leaving the US. Three of them, including The Starry Night are located in New York City and, in Chicago, Detroit, Boston, Philadelphia, Pasadena, New Haven and Washington, DC, all have the guardianship for at least one artwork.
A harsh disclaimer on the Today Is Art Day product page suggests you check with museums to see if any paintings are on display before you visit them, as the exhibits may change.
The poster can be purchased here on the Today Is Art Day website for $ 20. It will be delivered in mid-August.
