Following Van Gogh’s Footsteps

Following Van Gogh’s Footsteps

So first thing first. This means going to the Tourism office to get a map that shows the places in Arles where Vincent Van Gogh painted some of his paintings. Vincent arrived on February 18, 1888 in Arles. It was here where he was most productive, producing more than 300 works of drawings and paintings in fifteen months. There was a tour leaving in a few minutes but I chose not to go. I wanted to find the places on my own. All of the places on the map was visited but I’m only sharing some of them here. While driving around Provence, I saw Van Gogh’s paintings come to life. The sunset was amazing and yes, the yellow sun!
