“The Stolen Art Gallery is home to art you’ve most likely never seen in person. Within its virtual halls reside five of the most famous missing masterpieces that have been lost over time. Thanks to virtual reality, you can now lay your eyes on stolen work from Caravaggio, Vincent van Gogh, Rembrandt, Édouard Manet, and Paul Cézanne.”

This VR Gallery Is Comprised Entirely Of Stolen Art

“The Stolen Art Gallery is a one-of-a-kind VR app from Brazilian tech firm Compass UOL that immersed you in a virtual art gallery comprised entirely of stolen art from world-renown artists such as Caravaggio, Cezanne, Manet, Rembrandt, and Van Gogh. The educational VR experience allows you to get closer than ever before to 5 stolen paintings from the aforementioned Masters.”

The Stolen Art Gallery – a VR experience that places you in a gallery of major works of art that have been stolen or are missing

“This week, I used the headset to visit The Stolen Art Gallery, a VR exhibit of famous works of art that were either stolen or have gone missing. Created by Compass UOL, the app placed me in the center of a dark circular gallery surrounded by five works of art by Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Cézanne, Manet, and Van Gogh. Using a virtual smartwatch on my wrist, I was able to summon the visage of each artist to tell me the story of their painting and what happened to it.”

The Stolen Art Gallery Opens its Doors in the Metaverse

“In a metaverse twist, the Stolen Art Gallery brings back artist together with art. As moonlight filters from a skylight into the darkened warehouse of the gallery and you hear the crashing storm at sea, you can tap your wrist to have a miniature bust of Rembrandt materialize and share that he included a self-portrait in the boat, the only sailor looking back at you from the painting.”

The Stolen Art Gallery Opens its Doors in the Metaverse

“The gallery also includes Cézanne’s View of Auvers-sur-Oise, stolen from the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, UK, in the early hours of New Year’s Day, 1999. It was a carefully planned raid that must have netted the burglars millions, prompting Cezanne to comment that he lived all his life in poverty. At least the public can now pay him a visit and see two other missing works by Van Gogh and Manet just by donning a popular headset like the Meta Quest 2.”
