Also on show at the exhibition at the National Museum of China is a re-creation of the su
bject of Van Gogh’s noted painting, Room at Arles. The painting depicts his bedroom, one of sev
eral rooms he rented in the building known as the Yellow House in Arles, southern France.
The painting is striking because of the contrast between its bright colors and sharp angles. The roo
m is also a testimony to a meaningful period in Van Gogh’s career: Not only did he aspire to m
ore freedom to his painting in Arles, but also, he invited his painter friend Paul Gauguin to stay and work with him. The
relationship between them gradually became tense and ended in tragedy when Van Gogh cut off his left ear lobe.
