Van Gogh Museum – Van Gogh in Auvers. His final months

Local Events
May 12 - September 3, 2023
Vincent van Gogh lived in the French village of Auvers-sur-Oise near Paris, from 20 May 1890 until his death on 29 July of the same year. He was tremendously productive in these months and made several of his most renowned masterpieces, including Wheatfield with Crows, Doctor Paul Gachet, and The Church of Auvers-sur-Oise.

In the exhibition, you follow Van Gogh from his arrival in Auvers-sur-Oise, where he optimistically and ambitiously set to work. He was highly productive: he often created more than one painting a day, while freely experimenting with new approaches to colour, brushwork, formats and subjects. Inspiring as his new surroundings were, feelings of failure, loneliness and melancholy gradually gained the upper hand, culminating in his decision to take his own life. He died on 29 July.

Vincent van Gogh left behind a magnificent body of work. The exhibition also explores his significance as an artist at the time. Van Gogh in Auvers. His Final Months is the result of years of research into the final period of Van Gogh’s life. But above all, it is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see more than 50 paintings and 30 drawings and sketches by Vincent van Gogh that have never before been exhibited together, featuring exceptional loans from private collections and museums around the world.
