Vincent van Gogh in Provence

While in Avignon, I had a big blitz on the city's brilliant museums. My favourite of all was the Angladon Museum, which showcases the collection of Jacques Doucet, a successful belle époque fashion designer who lavished his fortune on amassing a fantastic collection of contemporary and - for the era - avant-garde art. If you want to see the only painting by Vincent van Gogh  to remain in Provence- Railway Wagons, painted in Arles in 1888 and pictured above - this is the place to go. And there are many other treasures in the Angladon Museum. Click here to read more.
