van Gogh and Gauguin - A Friendship Lost - Oils on Canvas by k Madison Moore



14 x 18 Oils on canvas

The empty chairs paintings of van Gogh’s chair and Gauguin’s chair that Vincent painted, for Van Gogh, signified the people who would sit in them, therefore they are both portraits—telling us about the two painters who spent nine weeks together in Arles' Yellow House. 

The chairs would have been in the front sitting room, where Van Gogh and Gauguin gathered after a long day at their easels in the evenings. They would converse and frequently argue there.

After only a 9 week friendship Gauguin left on not o great terms with van Gogh. Many Museums in the future hung  the paintings together but back to back. That is what this painting represents. A Friendship Lost.
