The Yellow House – Van Gogh | [HR] Painting & Info


The Yellow House alternatively named The Street is an 1888 oil painting by the 19th-century Dutch Post-Impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh. The painting was executed in September 1888, at which time Van Gogh sent a sketch of the composition to his brother Theo:

Initially, Van Gogh titled the painting as The House and its environment (French: La Maison et son entourage). Later he opted for a more meaningful title and called it The Street (French: La Rue), paying homage to a suite of sketches showing streets in Paris, by Jean-François Raffaëlli, and recently published in Le Figaro.

The house was the right wing of 2 Place Lamartine Arles, France, where, on May 1, 1888, Van Gogh rented four rooms. He occupied two large ones on the ground floor to serve as an atelier (workshop) and kitchen, and on the first floor, two smaller ones facing Place Lamartine.

The window on the first floor near the corner with both shutters open is that of Van Gogh’s guest room, where Paul Gauguin lived for nine weeks from late October 1888. Behind the next window, with one shutter closed, is Van Gogh’s bedroom. The two small rooms at the rear were rented by Van Gogh at a later time.

The building was severely damaged in a bombing raid by the Allies on June 25, 1944, and was later demolished.
