For both visual and literary drama, few artists can compete with Vincent Van Gogh. Together with a trove of ravishing, color-laden paintings, Van Gogh left behind words—in the form of letters to his beloved brother, Theo—that document a tormented, artistically-driven life, along with a cinematic life ending (suicide at 37) that remains fodder for scholars, filmmakers and aspiring artists.

All of which makes Van Gogh an ideal candidate for an interactive iPad app: which of us can turn down an inspirational, tragic story, accompanied by such pretty pictures? Van Gogh’s Dream, an app developed by French creative studio Mnestra, in conjunction with the Van Gogh Institute, delves deeply into the artist’s brief life and prodigious output through his own paintings and letters; video and interactive features; and interviews with experts, artists and art lovers. Dreamy stuff for just $9.99.
