Attraction details
Owner description: Vincent van Gogh is a pivotal figure in the art of the 20th century. His oeuvre continues to influence artists and exert an unprecedented magnetism upon the public right up to the present. It was in Arles that Van Gogh produced - within the space of just 15 months between February 1988 and May 1888 - his finest masterpieces. Inaugurated in April 2014, the Fondation Vincent van Gogh Arles pays due homage to the work of Van Gogh while at the same time exploring his impact upon art today. This relationship with contemporary art was enshrined within the principles of the Fondation right from its conception. By presenting the painting of the Dutch master in the context of works by contemporary artists, the Fondation aims to stimulate a fruitful dialogue centred on interrogation and reflection. EXHIBITIONS ON SHOW from 14 May to 11 September: VAN GOGH IN PROVENCE with 31 original paintings by Van Gogh GLENN BROWN: "Suffer Well" Screening of the film "Yes These Eyes are the Windows" by SASKIA OLDE WOLBERS *** URS FISHER from 1 October 2016 to 12 February 2017

The gardens are laid out in very much the same way as they were when Van Gough was in hospital here. It is a very pretty and calm place to spend a few moments wandering around. The colours of the flowers in the garden are very much of the same colours Van Gough used in his paintings when in Arles.
