discover the places where Vincent lived and worked

Paris, France

  • February 28, 1886 - February 19, 1888

Vincent probably used Léon Berville’s paint shop at 25 Rue de la Chaussée d’Antin. Two drawings from his Paris period were done on paper bearing the shop's watermark. Vincent also mentioned it in a letter from Arles when he was looking for Armand Théophile Cassagne’s instruction book Guide de l’alphabet du dessin. He wanted to use the book to teach drawing to lieutenant Paul Eugène Milliet, who he had met in Arles.
