Auvers-sur-Oise, an artists’ village 30 kilometres north of Paris is renowned as the place where Vincent van Gogh spent the last 70 days of his life. He painted nearly 80 works in this short period, some of which are his most famous. They include Wheat Field with Crows, Portrait of Dr. Gachet and The Church at Auvers. Van Gogh died in Auvers-sur-Oise on 29 July 1890. He is buried in the municipal cemetery next to his brother Theo. Both graves and the village, an outdoor museum with reproductions of his paintings (free map available from the Tourist Office) have become a pilgrimage for art lovers.
