Between 1888 and 1889 Vincent van Gogh created three paintings of his Bedroom in Arles, his bedroom at #2 Place Lamartine in Arles, Bouches-du-Rhône, France, also known as his Yellow House. Now, thanks to a new exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago, people will have the opportunity to spend the night in a full-size replica of Van Gogh’s famous painting entitled The Bedroom. The replica even manages to capture the unusual angles of the room as depicted in the painting.
The room is currently available on AirBnB for a mere $10 per night. It’s part of a larger apartment located in Chicago’s River North neighborhood.
“This room will make you feel like you’re living in a painting. It’s decorated in a Post-Impressionist style, reminiscent of Southern France and times gone by. Its furniture, bright colors, and artwork will give you the experience of a lifetime.”
This awesome opportunity was created to celebrate the Art Institute’s upcoming exhibition entitled Van Gogh’s Bedrooms, which is the first time all three versions of The Bedroom will be shown together in North America. Van Gogh painted his first of the three paintings shortly after moving into the “Yellow House,” but it later suffered water damage, so he created a second while at an asylum in Saint-Rémy in 1889 and then a third smaller version shortly thereafter as a gift for his mother and sister.
The Van Gogh’s Bedrooms exhibit features approximately 36 works by the artist, including paintings, drawings, and illustrated letters, as well as a selection of books and other ephemera known to have been in Van Gogh’s possession. It opens February 14, 2016 and runs through May 10, 2016.
