4 hours 46 sec ago The Art Institute of Chicago Vincent van Gogh painted this self-portrait the same week as his second version of The Bedroom. A patient at an asylum in Saint-Rémy at the time, Van Gogh left behind one of the few places in his life he could truly call his own.
Van Gogh’s Bedrooms is the first exhibition to delve into the fascinating history behind the bedroom paintings and the beloved artist’s restless search for a sense of home.
