The magic of Van Gogh at the Atelier des Lumières

Your Hotel Doisy Etoile team is passionate about the Atelier des Lumières. Whether you’re on a business trip, a romantic getaway or a family holiday, don’t miss a visit to this enchanting and fascinating digital art museum!


The Atelier des Lumières puts Van Gogh in the spotlight

Don’t expect to find paintings hanging on the wall as you would in a traditional museum or gallery. The Atelier des Lumières invites you to a unique sensory experience in which you can fully immerse yourself in the paintings of the great artists. Within this former foundry the paintings are projected on the walls, ceiling and floors, enabling visitors to view them in a dynamic way that magnifies detail, highlights brushstrokes and emphasises the elements of composition. Carefully chosen music adds to the ambiance, enhancing the feeling that you’ve stepped inside the work itself.


The genius of Van Gogh

The current digital exhibition of the Atelier des Lumières offers a chronological and thematic itinerary showing the artistic path of Vincent van Gogh, the troubled Dutch post-impressionist. His fascination with the colours and light he found during his sojourns in the south of France are particularly emphasised in this exhibition. Wander through or stand still amidst these beautiful images; the choice is yours, but whatever your preference, you will acquire a deeper understanding of the dramatic, expressive and influential work of Van Gogh. The Atelier des Lumières is open every day from 10:00 and late on weekends. However, we strongly recommended that you book your tickets on the museum’s website as it is extremely popular. 

Your Hotel Doisy Etoile team will show you how to get to the Atelier des Lumières via Metro and suggest some ideas for walks in this charming quartier that is often overlooked by visitors.
