About Bedroom in Arles Van Gogh painted three versions of this work in 1888 and 1889. All three versions depict Van Gogh’s bedroom at 2, Place Lamartine in Arles, France, known as the Yellow House. Van Gogh’s own title for this composition was simply The Bedroom.
The three paintings are currently housed at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Musée d’Orsay in Paris.
Van Gogh was a master painter who strongly influenced the abstract and Neo-expressionist who came after him. Originating from the Netherlands, he discovered Impressionist art while living in Paris and started to use the color and light. His work is well known for its beauty, emotion, and color, as well as its interesting viewpoints of mundane objects.
Despite being extremely poor and generally unknown throughout his lifetime, Van Gogh is now one of the greatest Dutch painters. He lived a life with emotional tension and madness, and he created his finest piece, Starry Night, inside an institution.
Although the specter of mental illness haunted him throughout his adult life and created a habit of inflicting self-harm (such as the infamous severed ear), his work remained a testament to his genius. Van Gogh died at the age of only 37, due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His brother Theo would go on to distribute his work and cultivate his popularity.
