  • A New VR Experience Takes You Into a Museum of Stolen Masterpieces

    “It is mostly dark in the Stolen Art Gallery, with a night sky above punctured by twin skylights that passively illuminate the room. You can’t see the walls, because there are no walls.

They aren’t there either, of course. They were all stolen decades ago.”

This is exactly what The Stolen Art Gallery does, and it does it very well.”

    “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

    “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.”
