  • It's really an amount information, photos and documents from the period that traces the coming of Van Gogh in Auvers, where he committed suicide after 2 months 1/2 living... Strong point: it's FREE! Points fables: must have good eyes - or good glasses for vision in small - time ahead, and not too many visitors jostling in the cramped spaces of this mansion... In so doing, we learn a lot!

  • It's a good time in the month of AUGUST in this garden full of flowers, plants... AND it'S FREE... beautiful course shady lime trees is our taxes... acquisition by the general Council. STORY: The doctor Dc GACHET buys a House a AUVERS, he was a painter too amateur. It hosts the painter VAN GOGH to his arrival in AUVERS around 1900. For the rest, the guide is perfect.

  • A little far from the Center, and not so easy to find (plan walk issued by the tourist office suggesting that the street of Dr. Gachet begins facing the Castle, while she's wearing two different names prior to being awarded the so-called appellation), home of Doctor Gachet, doctor atypical and lover of the arts, has to be earned. But in return, we console quickly by saying that deserves a visit. Surrounded by a charming garden, this two-storey high building breathes into all its pores (rich) life and the (endearing) who argued, among other artists, Van Gogh during his (last) stay in Auvers. We learn through his furniture, his mail, its graduates, its press and its works, which was Gachet and which artist he was himself thanks to a wide selection of prints, caricatures and paintings of his own. And it touches us, as much as a therapist as creator. Because, always focused on others, he practiced medicine not to magnify his scholarship but for the well-being of those who were suffering as they were ignored by self-righteous society (the insane, the soldiers of 1870, poverty-stricken artists). Similarly, if he collected many, it was a taste for the beautiful and never to speculate, the proof being that he supported the Impressionists and postimpressionists at the time where they were despised. Interesting also the share of light that is made on his son, himself an artist and protector of his father's work, we can also see in two small movies of news dating back to 1960. A reflection which is also true for the couple of aesthetes Americans who bought the House in 1962 and retained it in the State until their death. A beautiful heritage work is reflected in every inch of this moving Museum, more living than mausoleum, and opens free bonus at all. There are moments during the visit where one would almost a surprise to not see Marguerite Gachet play the piano under the gaze of Vincent who crunches it of his feverish brush indeed!
