Seascape near Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer

Early in 1888, Van Gogh travelled to the fishing village of Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer.
He lived in Arles, and had never seen the Mediterranean Sea.
He had to travel for hours in a coach to get there.
But after the trip, he was greeted by the Mediterranean.
Van Gogh stayed a while in Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer.
In barely a week, he made nine drawings and three paintings in and around the village.
