Various paintings (Arles, January-August 1888)
by Vincent van GOGH

In February 1888 van Gogh left for Arles in southern France. His major works (in terms of both quantity and quality were done in Arles. In his output in 1888, he used what he had learnt in Paris, moulded it, and gave it a quality of impressive monumentality. He was convinced that he was establishing a connection with the art he admired so much and with the exemplary lifestyle of the orient. He tried painting anything and everything.
