When Vincent Became Vincent: Van Gogh’s Jardin devant le Mas Debray

New York | 16 May

Jardin devant le Mas Debray captures this pivotal moment in summer of 1887 where color, subject and paint handling crystallized into Van Gogh’s mature style, one that would flourish in the three years remaining of his life in Paris, Arles, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and Auvers-sur-Oise. It was during this period of time, from 1887 to 1890, that Van Gogh’s greatest masterpieces were created, forever changing in the history of modern art. Surrounded by artists, dancers, musicians, actors and writers in Montmartre, Van Gogh abandoned the dark palette that dominated many of his early paintings in Holland and replaced it with a newfound love of color.

Jardin devant le Mas Debray from Vincent van Gogh will be offered in Sotheby’s Modern Evening auction on 16 May at Sotheby’s New York as a part of the New York Sales presented in partnership with CELINE.
