Van Gogh was so in­spired by the colours and land­scapes of Provence that he pro­duced over 200 paint­ings dur­ing his 15-month stay in Ar­les. The town’s as­so­ci­a­tions with the artist still at­tract lots of tourists to the area, and the up­com­ing ex­hi­bi­tion, Van Gogh in Provence: Mod­ernising Tra­di­tion looks set to draw many more. Run­ning from 14 May to 11 Septem­ber in the Foun­da­tion Vin­cent van Gogh, the ex­hi­bi­tion show­cases 31 orig­i­nal paint­ings de­pict­ing some of the Im­pres­sion­ist painter’s most im­por­tant still-life works that high­light his flair for putting a modern spin on tra­di­tional sub­jects. Spend a morn­ing sur­vey­ing these paint­ings in this re­fresh­ingly modern mu­seum be­fore tak­ing a stroll around the his­toric town to see the sights that in­spired its name­sake. fon­da­tion-vin­cent­van­gogh-ar­les.org
