Vincent Van Gogh Bedroom In Arles
1888 Fine Art Painting
Bedroom in Arles (French: La Chambre a Arles; Dutch: Slaapkamer te Arles) is the title given to each of three similar paintings by 19th-century Dutch Post-Impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh.
Van Gogh’s own title for this composition was simply The Bedroom (French: La Chambre a coucher). There are three authentic versions described in his letters, easily discernible from one another by the pictures on the wall to the right.
The painting depicts Van Gogh’s bedroom at 2, Place Lamartine in Arles, Bouches-du-Rhone, France, known as his Yellow House. The door to the right was opening to the upper floor and the staircase; the door to the left served the guest room he held prepared for Gauguin. The window in the front wall was looking to Place Lamartine and its public gardens.
