Vincent van Gogh painted three versions of one of his most famous compositions, The Bedroom at Arles (Art Institute of Chicago, Van Gogh Museum, Musee d'Orsay). Dr. Brettell will interpret the painting and its repetitions first in terms of van Gogh's own musings about them in letters, then in terms of his other works made around them, and lastly in terms of psychoanalytic and philosophical ideas of the past century.
