Fodor's Review

Van Gogh's 15-month stay in Arles represents a climax in the artist's career. Enchanted with Arles's limpid light, vibrant landscape, and scenic monuments, Van Gogh experienced here what was to be his greatest blossoming in a decade as a painter. The Fondation Vincent Van Gogh, originally conceived in the mid-80s in response to the 100th anniversary of the artist's arrival in Arles, pays homage to Van Gogh's legacy and monumental influence via an impressive range of artworks contributed by 90 contemporary artists. Opened in spring 2014 in the beautifully restored 15th-century Hôtel Léautaud de Donines, the Fondation houses a superb collection of contemporary art and provides a vital addition to Arles's cultural life with a revolving series of temporary art exhibitions, performance art, concerts, and happenings.
