Vincent Van Gogh Moulin De La Galette
1887 Fine Art Painting
Le Moulin de la Galette is the subject and title of several paintings made by Vincent van Gogh of a windmill. The Moulin de la Galette was near Van Gogh’s apartment with his brother, Theo in Montmartre. The owners of the windmill maximized the view on a butte overlooking Paris, creating a terrace for viewing and a dance hall for entertainment. The windmill paintings are a subset of paintings from Montmartre (Van Gogh series).
Vincent Willem van Gogh was a Post-Impressionist painter of Dutch origin whose work, notable for its rough beauty, emotional honesty, and bold color, had a far-reaching influence on 20th-century art.
