Troubled artist Vincent Van Gogh (1853 – 1890) longed for the tranquility and stability he portrays in “The Bedroom at Arles, c. 1887.” Van Gogh rented four rooms in his Yellow House in France in order to establish an artists’ colony which included his friend, Paul Gauguin. Painted shortly before he cut off his own ear, elements in the painting also represent Van Gogh’s internal struggle, which drove him to make that dramatic and painful decision. Slipping further in to depression, the prolific artist’s creativity ad productivity continued to flourish in Southern France’s bright light and color.
