Who knows where I was or what I was doing, but I've only just seen this very beautiful thread. It grows more exciting and poignant as you walk out of the modern world and walk where Van Gogh actually walked. Perfect capture of the place -- thank you!
The location of Vincent Van Gogh's very last painting has been discovered and will soon be a new pilgrimage site -- it is only about 150 metres from the pension where he was living. At the moment, it is behind a fence for protection, but it should be visible again before long.
What a great find and great story. Art sleuthing is always fascinating.
You're undoubtedly right about it being a place of pilgrimage for lovers of Van Gogh. If I could, I'd go there right now! The day spent in Auvers-sur-Oise two years ago is a shining memory.
Naturally I wondered if any reports here captured the scene. It's possible that your 6th picture from the bottom in reply #2 of this report might be allowing the viewer a peek through the arch to the road in Van Gogh's painting.
A good candidate is the last picture in reply #2 of Htmb's report -- the same road?
As usual a beautiful and well presented adventure. The clip of Dr Who had tears in my eyes and when the "Starry, starry night" filled my screen I was crying like a baby.The ending also was brilliantly done. I wish it were so.
