In the nineteenth century, Parisians were increasingly drawn to leisure activities along the Seine. New train stations and bridges made the suburbs of Paris more accessible, and along with that more popular. And yet factories and their smoking chimneys were steadily gaining dominance on the horizon.

Between 1881 and 1890, five ambitious artists – Van Gogh, Seurat, Signac, Bernard and Angrand – walked to the banks of the Seine to paint. With their easel positioned amongst the greenery, they captured the radical contrasts that characterised the area, from day trippers enjoying various water sports to the burgeoning industry. They found new, modern motifs, and developed their use of colour and painting techniques.

The works that Van Gogh made in the area around Asnières have been studied as a separate group for the first time, and compared with the work of four contemporaries who worked at the same locations. The exhibition unites 75 works, many of which have never before been on display at the Van Gogh Museum, or even in the Netherlands.

Highlights are Van Gogh’s “Fishing in Spring”, the “Pont de Clichy (Asnières)” (1887), Oil Sketch for “La Grande Jatte” (1883) by Georges Seurat and “Two Women on the Asnières Footbridge” (1887) by Emile Bernard.
