3D reproductions of four Van Gogh masterpieces go on sale from January 15-19 at the LA Art Show in Los Angeles, priced at $35,000 each.
The prints of Almond Blossom (1890), Sunflowers (1889), The Harvest (1888), Wheatfield Under Thunderclouds (1890) and Boulevard de Clichy (1887) were created by the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam in partnership with Fujifil, using a new 3D printing technique known as Reliefography.
The technique combines a three-dimensional scan of the painting with a high resolution print. The resulting reproduction, called a Relievo, includes a reproduction of both the front and the back of the painting, as well as the frame. Each piece is produced as a limited edition of 260.
“As a cultural enterprise, the Van Gogh Museum is constantly in search of new markets,” said Axel Ruger, director of the Van Gogh Museum. “These high-quality reproductions are intended for individuals with the means and interest to acquire superb reproductions of Van Gogh paintings.”
