Vincent van Gogh’s Sunflowers is one of the world’s most famous paintings. But sadly, at 130 years old, its traveling days are over.

A team of experts spent six weeks looking carefully at the painting of sunflowers in a vase. They said the painting has become too fragile to leave Amsterdam on tours and will have to stay home.

The paint could be damaged if the air humidity and temperature change, said Van Gogh Museum director Axel Ruger.

“It is therefore important that the painting is moved as little as possible and that it is displayed in a stable environment,” he said.

The experts also believe that Sunflowers, which Van Gogh painted in January 1889, was based on an earlier painting from 1888. That earlier painting now hangs in a London gallery.

Sunflowers will go back on display at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam on Feb. 22 under new, more gentle lighting. (Reuters)
