The exhibition marks the first time all three versions of van Gogh’s The Bedroom will be on display simultaneously in North America. The first he painted in 1888, shortly after moving into Yellow House. Part of Amsterdam’s Van Gogh Museum collection, the first painting suffered water damage, so he painted a replica while at an asylum in Saint-Rémy in 1889. And then he painted a smaller third version for his mother and sister. This is now on display at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris.

“A digitally enhanced reconstruction of his bedroom allows viewers the chance to experience his state of mind and the physical reality of the space that so inspired him, while other enriching digital components bring to light significant recent scientific research on the three Bedroom paintings,” according to AIC. “The result is an innovative yet intimate look at one of the most beloved and often-misunderstood artists of all time.”
Located outside of the museum’s campus in Chicago’s River North neighborhood, the room, which will accommodate two guests, is likely to rent out soon. The exhibition runs through May 10, 2016.
