Vincent van Gogh’s bedroom in Arles is arguably the most famous chambre in the history of art. It also held special significance for the artist, who created three distinct paintings of this intimate space from 1888 to 1889.



The Art Insitute Chicago to celebrate the Vincent van Gogh exhibition (Through May 10, 2016) has re-created the iconic “Bedroom in Arles” in a modern apartment in Chicago and is available for rent on Airbnb.



“This room will make you feel like you're living in a painting” you can read on the website. “It's decorated in a Post-Impressionist style, reminiscent of Southern France and times gone by. Its furniture, bright colors, and artwork will give you the experience of a lifetime”.



The host is Vincent (van Gogh)...and you can rent the room for $10 (€9).

He explains that “I'm charging $10 for no other reason than that I need to buy paint. However, I will be happy to provide you with tickets to my exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago”.
