The magnificent Hotel Estrine in Saint-Remy de Provence has been paying homage to Vincent Van Gogh since 2007.
The painter lived in Saint-Remy de Provence
A true jewel of 18th century Provençal architecture, the Hôtel Estrine was built in 1748 to house the seat of the judicature of the princes of Monaco. It was fully restored in 1989 and awarded the Living Heritage Prize of the Fondation de France. Since 2007, it has housed the Musée Estrine, a young museum in France, and in 2014 it benefited from a vast expansion and renovation programme. To pay homage to Vincent van Gogh who lived in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence from May 8, 1889 to May 20, 1890, the Estrine Museum has created an educational space multimedia devoted to the life and work of the painter.
An exceptionnal personality
The Vincent van Gogh interpretation center allows visitors to (re)discover the human and artistic journey of this exceptional personality and his influence on the creation of the 20th and 21st centuries. It was fully restored in 1989 and awarded the Living Heritage Prize of the Fondation de France. The Musée Estrine collection is dedicated to 20th and 21st century painting and graphic arts in the lineage of the two great artists who left their mark on the town of Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Vincent van Gogh and Albert Gleizes. With more than 1,000 works, this collection provides a rich panorama of regional and national creation with artists such as Vincent Bioulès, Bernard Buffet, Albert Gleizes, Eugène Leroy and Paul Rebeyrolle. Two to three temporary exhibitions are organized each year around important themes of painting or painters and draughtsmen of great talent.
