Van Gogh in Auvers-sur-Oise

Where Turtle proved essential

It was a big year for Van Gogh last year, with the major two-venue exhibition dedicated to the artist’s final months of his life. Opening at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the exhibition attracted thousands of visitors from all over the world, proving the power of experiencing art in person and reminding us why we do the work we do. At its second venue in Paris, ‘Van Gogh in Auvers-sur-Oise’ was the Musée d’Orsay’s most visited exhibition in the history of its existence!

The exhibition showed the result of years of research into this crucial phase of the artist’s life, a story that could only be told thanks to the unique collaboration between both museums and their use of the Turtle with Turtle T+ for the transportation of paintings from the Van Gogh Museum, ensuring the optimal protection of these fragile works.
