OIL PAINTING:  The Dance Hall at Arles, 1888

When he had left Paris a few months earlier, Van Gogh had hoped that other artists would come and join him in Arles where they would have started a joint studio. But Gauguin was the only one to come and his stay ended dramatically: on 23rd December, a violent argument broke out between the two men, at the end of which Van Gogh cut off his ear. Gauguin's influence is perceptible in this picture - simplified forms, dark outlines defining the contours and the use of flat colors.
