France - Auvers-sur-Oise, Van Gogh

Hi, Our first stop after leaving Paris was Auvers-sur-Oise where Vincent Van Gogh spent the final 2 months of his life.

We began our visit at the statue of Van Gogh.

Van Gogh died in this building.

Here is a print of one of the 70 paintings done by Van Gogh while he lived here and

here is the scene today.

The village was very picturesque (above and below).

Van Gogh painted this church

from this perspective.

This road leads up to the famous wheat field he painted and

then to the cemetery where he was buried.  His brother died six months later and was buried beside Vincent in 1905.  Thanks for looking.
