The Church at Auvers-sur-Oise by Vincent van Gogh is found in the Musee D’Orsay in Paris. It was painted in the last few months of the artists life. The painting is challenging and poses viewers many questions. To mention a few …
Why is the church painted with distorted lines?
Why is this sky so intensely blue?
Why is there no entrance into the church?
What is the significance of the divided paths?
