“Vincent and Theo, united in death”

Reviewed 10 June 2017

The cemetery is about 30 minutes' walk from the center of town, and contains the graves of Vincent and Theo van Gogh. Theo died six months later. They are buried in separate graves, but the son of one of Vincent's friends planted ivy around both graves so that the site looks like one large grave--brothers linked in death as they were in life. Visitors often leave floral offerings on the graves. One can drive to the cemetery, but it is more interesting to walk.

If you are staying nearby and are interested in Vincent Van G than this little town where he died is worth a visit. I have included a photo of his grave, his brother is buried alongside him. I have also included a photo of the church that you pass on the way to the cemetery. Van G painted this church and the original now hangs in the Orsay Museum.

Vincent and Théo are not the only famous inhabitants although most of the people come to visit them the best maintained and beautiful is Emile Boggio's grave.

The cemetery on the outskirts of town has the graves of Vincent and Theo Van Gogh. A poignant reminder of the tragic life of this brilliant artist.

If you love Van Gogh, do not miss it! It is a small modest cemetery in the countryside, near to Paris. The atmosphere is very special, as if time stopped in 1890. The little village is marked by the memory of great painter
