Vincent van Gogh Painting Sunflowers by Paul Gauguin, 1888

Art historian Joseph P. Cassar takes a close look at the brief period in the late 1880s when Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin shared the Yellow House in Arles, where van Gogh planned to develop an artists' colony. The union between the two artists would end after nine weeks, with a tragic episode in which van Gogh threatened Gauguin with a razor after a disagreement. While this proved to be a highly productive time for van Gogh, Gauguin left Arles after van Gogh’s hospitalization for cutting off his own ear.

Several works by both artists are studied and analyzed by Cassar, identifying similarities and differences to illustrate how van Gogh and Gauguin, despite their many disagreements, influenced each other.
