Recommendation by Lemi

Lastly, we end our trek through the masterpieces at the Notre Dame l’Assomption. Vincent Van Gogh painted the church when he was staying in Auvers-sur-Oise. It was hailed as his most productive years, but ultimately, it was also where he committed suicide. Before that though, he painted the beautiful landscapes and this church. In a letter to his sister, he expressed an interest in the vivid colors of the church: the pure cobalt sky, the partly orange roof, and green plants in bloom. The church has a different charm in person, but it shows the creative mind that lies behind Van Gogh’s eyes.
