General

In the late 19th century, the beautiful village of Auvers-sur-Oise was home to some of the greats of Impressionist art, notably Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cézanne, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, Camille Pissarro and Charles-François Daubigny, who were all inspired by life in and around the quiet village. Van Gogh was encouraged to come to Auvers-sur-Oise by Dr. Paul-Ferdinand Gachet, a physician and amateur painter who supported the arts.

Retrace Van Goghs paintings through visiting scenes in the village that each inspired a famous painting, including  a village street, the Auvers Town Hall, and Dr. Gachets garden, which is now part of a museum as well.

Vincent van Gogh committed suicide in the Auberge Ravoux, an inn in the village which was renamed the House of van Gogh; and which is now a museum. See the artist’s room on the top floor, watch a visual presentation of the artist’s life and lunch in the fine restaurant which was originally the café where he ate.

You may also visit the Church and cemetery of Auvers-sur-Oise to see the tombs of Vincent van Gogh and his brother, Theo.

There will also be time to explore the 17th century Château d’Auvers and see a multimedia presentation about the Impressionists of Auvers-sur-Oise. Spend time at the house and studio of Charles-François Daubigny, famous for his landscape paintings, which is now a museum displaying his paintings and those of his fellow artists.
