SEOUL, March 7 (UPI) -- Ninety works by Vincent van Gogh will be shown in Seoul later this year in what officials said is a first-of-its-kind exhibit for the Asian country.

The Seoul Museum of Art exhibit was made possible by the Hankook Ilbo a sister company of The Korea Times, in cooperation with the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam and the Kroeller-Mueller Museum in Otterlo, Netherlands, the Times said.

The two museums' combined collection contains about half of the 900 drawings and oil paintings by Van Gogh.

Government officials said the breadth of the November exhibition, one of the largest since the Van Gogh Museum's exhibit celebrating his 100th birthday, demonstrates South Korea's commitment to cultural development.
