Seventy-four paintings in only two months - this is the surprising output of the sojourn of Vincent Van Gogh in the village of Auvers-sur-Oise in Provence. Then his death, tragic and sudden, at the height of the most productive period in the artist’s life. For the first time, an exhibition concentrates on the final phase of the painter, between the 20th of May and the 29th of July of 1890, marked by stark contrasts - one one hand, anxiety, angst and a depressive crisis, on the other, an explosion of creativity and new artistic ideas, prelude to iconic masterpieces. Forty works narrate the troubled sunset of Van Gogh at the Musée d’Orsay, retracing his human and ceative arc. Views of the village, portraits, still lifes and rural landscapes bear witness to 70 intensely-lived days, amidst new friends and natural landscapes, the cures of Doctor Gachet - expert psychiatrist close to the Impressionists, as well as a collector and novice painter himself - and the fascination for the Mediterranean light. While Van Gogh took on his last exhausting adventure, his style transformed as well, giving life to paintings like Wheatfield with Crows, The Church of Auvers-sur-Oise and Doctor Paul Gachet, all on hand at this event in Paris.
