> Van Gogh and Gauguin: The Studio of the South

>This Website is a companion to the Art Institute of Chicago's current
>exhibition of work by Paul Gauguin and Vincent Van Gogh. The focus of
>this
>show is the paintings produced during a time when the artists shared a
>studio in Arles, October-December 1888. During this period, the artists
>lived, ate, and worked together. They tested their individual theories
>of
>artmaking by painting a number of identical motifs. The Art Institute's
>Website reproduces many of these images and matches them with excerpts
>of
>letters written by Paul Gauguin and Vincent Van Gogh between 1887 and
>1889.
>The painters' candid "remarks about their own canvases offer unique
>perspectives on the Arles period." This Website also contains many brief
>essays on themes and historic background, a chronology, and related maps
>(purportedly coming soon). Overall the site is a nice introduction into
>a
>tumultuous artistic friendship (At the end of December, Van Gogh
>threatened
>Gauguin with a knife causing Gauguin to flee. Yikes!) and a deeper look
>at
>the work of these Post-Impressionism giants. Note: Some users may have
>to
>adjust their screen resolution to read the tiny font. [DJS]
