Auvers Sur Oise

Auvers is a village on the Oise river about 35 kilometers from Paris. In the 1880’s it was a sleepy little hamlet with homes of thatched roofs and fields of wheat and other crops in the vast stretches of farmland outside of town. The still standing Ravoux Inn is where Vincent stayed, a short walk from his physician and friend, Dr. Paul Gachet. Vincent spends the final six months of his life in Auvers, painting haystacks and cottages and portraits whenever he can find a model. Vincent and Theo are buried next to each other in the cemetery of Auvers Sur Oise.
