Van Gogh exhibit

Gauguin’s chair (1888) * Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

At the end of October 1888, the painter Gaugain arrived in Arles to join Van Gogh at the Yellow House, where Vincent wanted to start his Atelier du Midi. During this period he painted Gaugains’ chair, as well as his own chair. These works are very different, like the characters of Van Gogh and Gaugain.
