Vincent van Gogh in Paris from February 1886

He went on February 27, 1886, from Antwerp to Paris to live with his brother Theo. They lived on Montmartre, Rue Lepic 54, an artists' quarter. Previously Vincent had known only Dutch painters and the French realists. Now he sees for himself how the Impressionists handle light and color, and treat their original themes from the town and country. For four months Van Gogh studies at the prestigious teaching atelier of Fernand Cormon, and he begins to meet the city's modern artists, including Paul Gauguin, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Emile Bernard, Camille Pissarro and Georges Seurat.

Van Gogh used in 1886 the same painting techniques as Rembrandt did in The 17-Century. Vincent liked that way of painting very much. There is one exception. Lane at the Jardin du Luxembourg. This painting is different. More like his paintings in later years.
