At the heart of Val d’Oise, the castle offers a rich scenography where digital and original works meet to bring to life the geographical and artistic explorations of the Dutch master.

A trip through France

From 1886 to 1890, Van Gogh traveled through several regions of France which would inspire his prolific work. The exhibition retraces his stays in Paris, Arles, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and, of course, Auvers-sur-Oise, where he created no less than 74 paintings in less than 70 days. These places, each with a unique atmosphere, nourish the painter’s imagination and transform his work.
