We love the fact that Vincent Van Gogh spent time in Arles in his very short 37 year life span. We love seeing the places he painted - the arena, the Rhône river, the cafes and the bridges (the langlois bridge is still there and...More

They always have a great exhibition whenever we visit. This time they had a great collection of work by Van Gogh, 1970's work by Picasso, some paintings by Giorgio di Chirico and an extensive collection of work by Paul Nash. The gallery always seems tranquil...More

We spent an hour or so here to see the Van Gogh paintings but there are also half a dozen paintings by Picasso on display and we were also able to see the Paul Nash exhibition. It’s a lovely historic building with a contemporary courtyard...More

Always an interesting exhibition on. Whilst there is some work by Van Gogh it is usually shown in relation to other artists. Great None the less.
