Chateau d’Auvers offers the “Impressionist Vision” experience, plunging the visitor into the world of Impressionist painting. It is an immersive, emotional and sensory experience. The layout and scenography integrate innovative technology and lighting: projections, mappings, morphing, giant screens and much more. For a spectacular experience and an unforgettable visit.
Subtitled “Birth and Descendancy” the journey shows what inspired Impressionism, which was a break with the standards of the time, but also its influence on later movements such as Protocubism, Fauvism and indeed abstraction. The experience throws new light on the heritage of Impressionism, on the work of the painters and on the particular place of Auvers-sur-Oise as a source of inspiration, place of exchange and holiday resort.
30 minutes north of Paris, the village of Auvers-sur-Oise is the place where Vincent van Gogh lived for the last 70 days of his life. During the 19th century, a number of painters lived and worked in this bucolic village, including Paul Cézanne, Camille Pissarro, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, and Vincent Van Gogh. Auvers-sur-Oise is also the final resting place of Vincent Van Gogh.
