More than 200,000 visitors have been to view the "Van Gogh Alive" exhibition being held in an "Art Castle" erected on Taiping Lake in Shanghai's Xintiandi area, earning it the top position among the cultural exhibitions in Shanghai in 2015.

According to Youth Daily, 250,000 tickets have been sold in presale, which means 50,000 more will come to view the exhibit. The organizer suggested that visitors should see the exhibition as early as possible, to avoid the rush in the last month.

The 35-minute exhibition projects thousands of high-resolution photographs on 40 huge screens - some measuring up to seven meters in height. The 3,000 images are of Van Gogh's canvases, including his best-known paintings, sketches, drafts and letters he wrote mainly to his younger brother, Theo.
