When you read about Dr. Gachet's life at the exhibit, you will see why Theo Van Gogh trusted him to look after his brother Vincent. The museum is very personal and gives you a perspective on the lives of artist at that time and place. The doctor's garden includes images that Vincent Van Gogh painted of it and how it looks today. The admission is free, so don't miss it!

The doctor's house provides a helpful backdrop to Van Gogh's inspirations to his paintings. Ideally, see the doctor's house and the Maison on the same visit and then visit the Musee d'Orsay afterwards when you can see Van Gogh's interpretations of the village scenes.

We found the place fairly quiet late afternoon, after most of the bus tours had departed.

Prior to visiting I never knew anything about Paul Gachet. He was quite a character, trained as a doctor and a friend and host to many famous artists. The house is pretty small but it's free entry and well worth an hour of your time.

You can glimpse the home of Dr Gachet, the doctor entrusted with caring for Van Gogh's physical and mental health.

A little walk from the town centre but well worth it- entrance is free. A charming house and the story of the relationship with not only Van Gogh but other artists- is very interesting. Also there was an exhibition of his own drawings . He spoke at Van Gogh's funeral and planted the ivy at the graves of the brothers so it made one tomb to bind them together.

One got a real feel of what it must have been like when Van Gogh came to visit. There is an atmosphere that has been preserved - highly recommend the detour which is accessible on foot from the main town.

Again, nice to wander the township and see the pertinent places relating to VG.
Funny thing as we were walking along , was the donkey in a paddock , high up above the road. It waited until we were right below him then he let out the loudest bray that I've ever heard. All 10 of us jumped in fright. He seemed to find it funny. It was!! So watch out.

I had a fab day looking and walking in the footsteps of Van Gogh and as I was heading to The House of Dr Gachet I mat Marianna.

The Day I Spent in Auvers-Sur-Oise

She appeared at the top of a dusty steep track
That peeped out among dry stone walls and foliage
Onto the Rue Victor Hugo
She on an after thought could have been
Ursula Andress coming out of the sea
To greet Shaun Connery in the scene from Dr No.
Indeed it was such a strange sight.
“Avez-vous le chemin de la maison du Docteur Gachet”?
“Direct”! I pointed the way ahead.
“Direct”?
“Yes” I said” it’s direct”.
She was slight very, very slight
She could have easily been a model or a film star
Everything about her reminded me of someone
I have no idea who it was
She told me her name was Marianna
She grabbed my arm and held me tight
One of her high heels that was so thin and delicate broke
She held onto me while she did a fast repair
She was immaculate in pearls and diamanté
Her hair glowed in the sunlight
“Allez-vous à une danse”? I asked her as I was so amazed at her attire
“Aucun,Chic” she answered
We escorted each other to the house of Dr Gachet where we sipped champagne
She introduced me to the mayor and a poet and some artists
It was a premier and we drank more champagne
Chatted and laughed and had a splendid afternoon
On leaving her at the same steep track I said “goodbye-au revoir madame”
She turned and fixed me in her crystal blue eyes.
“No John ….. Marianna”.
Arnold on the other hand was so much bigger than his slim frame
Arnold was loud very loud and he commanded me to look at him and his past
He had paintings outside on easels which were terrible
Blotches of paint and stippled colours
No forms at all Van Gogh attempts
A sign said café fermé but he sat in his studio in a garden
That was cracking in the afternoon heat
I was shown in and sat down while he hunted manic like in the draw of a cabinet
A hand full of images black and white of his children
Images too of his youth spent in Montmartre
He looked great every inch a rebel
He spoke of his family all living in London all doing well
One in Richmond with deer and ducks
He laughed loud very loud pointing at me and laughing
Fou Fou I thought. “I am Paris, Paris is Paris, I miss Paris”!
“Montmartre and my youth I miss it all”!
He showed me pictures of himself with princesses and glamorous
Ladies that offered him a different life
“No I was married with four children how could I”?
He said laughing again laughing loud
A cigarette unlit in his had pointing
“Politics” he shouted showing me a photo of a man standing on a box
“Politic, Politic Change nothing will change
Around and around
You take they want
The want they take”!
Loud laughter “nothing changes”!
I said “goodbye -au revoir monsieur”
I took a quick selfie of us together
The artist and the fool
And headed to Paris

As others have stated it is free, so if you are in Auvers-sur-Oise you might as well go.

It is a cute little place with some nice history and when I went they had a very interesting art display. Go and then go to O'rsay after and you an see the paintings he made while there.
