discover the places where Vincent lived and worked

Paris, France

In December 1887, Paul Gauguin wrote that he had left a painting for Vincent with the framer Pierre Cluzel in Rue Fontaine Saint-Georges. Gauguin had been to an exhibition in Restaurant du Chalet that Vincent had organised in November–December 1887, and afterward, the two artists had agreed to swap work. Vincent traded two paintings of overblown sunflowers for Gauguin’s On the Banls of the river at Martinique. Gauguin picked up the paintings at Boussod, Valadon & Cie at 19 Boulevard Montmartre, where Vincent’s brother Theo worked.
