Vincent Van Gogh is one of the world's most famous artists, with his iconic self-portraits, starry landscapes and sunflowers. But a far less popular painting has become the subject of an immersive Van Gogh experience. 

The Potato Eaters is one of Van Gogh's least-liked pieces of work, with its bleak palette, dark shadows and cartoonishly grotesque. But the Vincent Van Gogh Gallery is giving it the credit it deserves by creating an experience that means people can 'live' in the painting. The gallery has created a replica of the cottage depicted in the piece so Van Gogh fans can visit and step directly into the painting. Missing the buzz of your favourite gallery?
