When you enter Van Gogh's Bedrooms, one of the first things that greets you is a meandering timeline that traces Vincent's peripatetic wanderings. In fact, Van Gogh lived in 37 places during his 37 years of life. This nomadic lifestyle took a toll on the artist and he yearned for a place of his own. It was only when he moved into the Yellow House in Arles—the very site of the three Bedroom paintings—that he achieved this dream.
The timeline not only shows the various locations and lengths of stay, but also highlights where Van Gogh was living when he created some of his most iconic works. Some sneak peek images are below. . .
Van Gogh's Bedrooms opens today to members and on Sunday to the public.
