I recently had the pleasure of being invited by the Van Gogh Museum to Auvers-sur-Oise to join the event marking 125 years since Vincent van Gogh’s death and to celebrate the publication of the wonderful Van Gogh Atlas, which I translated. It was quite something to be in Auvers and to feel like I was walking in Vincent’s shoes.

It’s a very special place, and if you’re interested in Vincent’s art and life then I absolutely recommend a visit.

Vincent van Gogh, born in Zundert, NL, in 1853, died in Auvers-sur-Oise, France, in 1890.
