"Arles, in southern France, was pivotal to the life of Vincent van Gogh. It was on the Rhone River that #vanGogh painted sparkling reflections from the quay one particularly memorable night. The Yellow House, the sun-drenched Provençal home that was the subject of his 1888 oil painting, once stood in Arles. This year — the year that commemorates the 125th anniversary of van Gogh's death — a @nytimestravel writer toured Europe in his footsteps, from Arles to Montmartre in Paris and St. Rémy in Provence, and ultimately to the Parisian suburb of Auvers-sur-Oise, where van Gogh's life was cut short. @alex_cretey_systermans took this photo in #Arles for @nytimestravel."
