discover the places where Vincent lived and worked

Paris, France

  • February 28, 1886 - February 19, 1888

The framer Jean-Marie Boyer (1850–after 1906) ran a business on Rue Fontaine in Paris. On 3 April 1888, Vincent told his brother Theo in a letter from Arles that Boyer still had one of his lithographs; he was referring to At Eternity’s Gate. When he lived in Paris, Vincent may have gone to Boyer to have his work framed, or perhaps to exhibit it in the hope of selling it to Boyer’s customers.
