Gachet

21 August 2015

The Notre Jardin collection began with the tale of Dr Gachet and Van Gogh. This print features flowers from Dr Gachet’s garden.

Van Gogh believed in the restorative power of flowers and gardens and wrote to his sister, Wil, telling her to cultivate her garden to find joy and meaning in her life.

During Van Gogh’s stay with Dr Gachet in Auvers-sur-Oise he enjoyed a final and productive period painting 70 paintings in 70 days, including a portrait of Dr Gachet and several paintings of his garden.
