The bedroom of Van Gogh
In this year of Rembrandt and Cézanne one could easily forget about Vincent van Gogh. In Arles, where Van Gogh stayed for two very productive years, they did something about it.
In the shadow of the Roman amphitheatre the bedroom of the painter, well known from no less then five paintings and drawings by the master him self, has been redecorated according to the paintings. You may visit it starting today till the end of October.
However, it's not really the room Van Gogh used to sleep. That room was somewhere else at the Roundabout des Arènes, but was bombed during the Second World War.
