The Van Gogh House

The Van Gogh House is located in the old “Auberge Ravoux” guest house, which is the only known atelier of Van Gogh that still remains in its original condition today. On 20 May 1890, he moved into room no. 5 where he passed away on 29 July 1890. In the same house, a multimedia presentation that draws on his paintings, correspondence and a selection of contemporary photography sheds light on what the
artist´s stay in Auvers-sur-Oise was like.

The House of Dr. Gachet

The Parisian Doctor and amateur painter Dr. Paul Gachet, friend and patron of the impressionists, was introduced to the Auvers-sur-Oise house by artists like Pissarro and Cézanne and purchased it in April 1872. Today, its interior continues to tell tales of times gone by. This is where Van Gogh finished some of his paintings including “Portrait of Dr. Gachet“ and three paintings where he gave the garden a Mediterranean flair. Van Gogh, who was welcomed by Dr. Gachet, spent many cheerful hours in the garden - though the doctor was unable to help him.
