The SunflowersIn The Sunflowers exhibition at The National Gallery two of Vincent van Gogh's iconic Sunflower paintings, dating from 1888, are shown alongside each other for the first time in 65 years. Visitors will therefore be able to compare two of the five versions of 'Sunflowers' that are now spread across the world, examining the contrasts and exploring the artist's working practices with the help of new technology.
