discover the places where Vincent lived and worked

Chez Bataille
Paris, France

  • February 28, 1886 - February 19, 1888

Vincent, his brother Theo, and Theo's close friend (and later brother-in-law) Andries Bonger dined together almost every day at Chez Bataille, a cheap eatery in Montmartre. There, Vincent made the drawing Window in the Bataille Restaurant. It was then customary for single men to eat in restaurants, and doing so was easy and cheap.
