discover the places where Vincent lived and worked

Paris, France

  • February 28, 1886 - February 19, 1888

The English-run art supply store Hardy-Alan sold paint, canvases and easels, and Vincent sometimes bought materials there. The store’s mark was visible on the back of Vase of Cornflowers, Daisies, Poppies and White Carnations until the painting was lined in a restoration. Artists including Auguste Renoir, Henri Fantin-Latour and James McNeill Whistler also patronised the shop, which did business from 1862 to 1933. Hardy-Alan manufactured its own canvases and paint in a workshop at 15 Avenue Victor Hugo in Vanves (then just outside Paris).
