Van Gogh in plants at the National Gallery London

If I was in London before the end of October 2011 I would definitely visit Trafalgar Square to look at this vertical garden on the wall of the National Gallery. from  treehugger

It’s the first living painting in London’s Trafalgar Square, and maybe the first anywhere. A Van Gogh picture has been turned into a green living vertical wall.

Depicting Van Gogh’s painting, A Wheatfield with Cypresses, it’s a new way to draw people into the National Gallery to see the real thing.
