discover the places where Vincent lived and worked

Hofer frères
Paris, France

  • February 28, 1886 - February 19, 1888

Hofer Frères, in the Rue des Grand-Augustins, sold art supplies such as canvases and paint, most of which it manufactured itself. The shop also restored artworks. Vincent's paintings Sunset in Montmartre and Le Blute-Fin Mill bear Hofer Frères’ mark on their backs.
