‘Touch Van Gogh’ app

wins award

The Touch Van Gogh app for tablets won the Heritage in Motion Award 2014 in the ‘Apps for mobile devices’ category. Jolein van Kregten, educator of the Van Gogh Museum, received the prize on Friday 25 April in Glasgow: ‘The jury appreciates this app, with which our museum makes the paintings of Vincent van Gogh widely accessible to the general public’, she said. ‘The users discover for themselves what is hidden in and behind the paint and in that way, come closer to the painter’s work and intentions than ever before. They can therefore ‘rediscover’ the paintings, as it were.’
