Vincent Van Gogh
This autumn, Orsay Museum is presenting a brand new exhibition on the last months Vincent Van Gogh spent in Auvers-sur-Oise. The perfect opportunity to revisit the life and work of this major 19th-century artist. Immerse yourself in his colourful works with our playlist!

Vincent van Gogh is known commonly to not have had a successful career during his life; one of the first tortured artists. But did he only have one buyer for his art while he was alive? To understand why this belief has persisted for over a century, we should go back to the time he was alive, looking at his peers, the art market, and even his paintings, the remarkable ones and the less so.
