The Bedroom

Vincent Van Gogh's "The Bedroom" was painted in Arles, France, 1888.

72 x 90 cm, Oil con canvas.

Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Van Gogh made three paintings of his bedroom. Did you notice that there are hardly any shadows in this painting? Vincent painted it this way on purpose. He wanted to make this painting look like a Japanese print because he thought these prints were so beautiful. Japanese prints don't have many shadows either. Isn't that interesting?
