THE YELLOW HOUSE OF VINCENT VAN GOGH
Vincent van Gogh (1853 - 1890), Arles, September 1888
Original: oil on canvas 91.5 x 72 cm bxh
The Yellow House (ca. 1888) - La Maison jaun - is one of Vincent van Gogh's famous paintings. It is a painting of a building in Arles, France, where Vincent van Gogh himself rented two rooms.
The window on the first floor, with the open shutters, belongs to the room in which his friend Paul Gauguin was staying, with whom Vincent van Gogh wanted to found the Atelier du monde. The room behind the closed shutters belonged to Vincent van Gogh himself. Van Gogh also immortalised this room in the painting The Bedroom. In the painting The Yellow House, there is a restaurant with a grocery shop on the left side of the building. The street has been broken up in order to lay a gas pipeline. To the right, the street passes under two railway bridges.
This masterpiece by Vincent van Gogh can be seen in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. Read more about the life and work of Vincent van Gogh on his painter page.
