ABSTRACT
The article discusses artist Vincent Van Gogh's life and acquaintances in Arles, France. It contrasts the quiet and slower environment of Arles to the busy pace of Paris. The article notes that the rural setting of Arles offered the kind of rejuvenation and focus that Van Gogh preferred, while its people gave him the kind of subjects that he needed for painting. It mentions Paul Gauguin's arrival in Arles in October 1888, which led to further animosity between him and Van Gogh.
