Pork butcher's shop seen from a window

In May 1888 Van Gogh rented four rooms in a house on Place Lamartine in Arles. His home can be identified from the green shutters, behind which lay his bedroom. The house had to refurbished and furnished before Van Gogh could eventually move in, in September 1888. Until this time the artist used the premises as a studio. Shortly after he had taken up residence, Van Gogh made his famous painting Pork-Butcher's Shop Seen from a Window. Made after a sketch he brought from Paris.
