The Yellow House, 1888
Vincent Van Gogh
This painting was executed in September, 1888.
Vincent sent a sketch of the painting to his
brother Theo with the following description:
The house on the left is yellow with green shutters. It's the one that is shaded by a tree. This is the restaurant where I go to dine every day. My friend the factor is at the end of the street on the left, between the two bridges of the railroad. The night café that I painted is not in the picture, it is on the left of the restaurant.
