A Last Few Months

One of his most famous works, there are two versions of this painting. It shows Doctor Gachet sitting with his hands on a table with his head leaning on his right arm. Both the paintings are essentially the same, but for style and colour. Both were painted in June 1890—just a month before the master painter’s death.

After securing his release from the asylum at Saint-Remy, Vincent was sent to Doctor Gachet’s home in Auvers by his brother Theo, who looked after him financially. Gachet, although a doctor by profession, had an avid interest in art, and was an amateur artist himself.

Van Gogh is known to have said that he had found a true friend and brother in Doctor Gachet, and that they resembled each other mentally and physically.

A Melancholy Gaze

Doctor Gachet has a melancholy gaze in this portrait,  often described by experts as ‘the sad expression of our time’. His sad and rather droopy eyes appear to be searching for something far away, something he’s unsure of.

The table is red in colour, and has two yellow books—Germinie Lacerteux and Manette Salomon, written by two brothers—the presence of the books representing the close relationship he shared with Doctor Gachet. There’s also the plant foxglove on the table, the plant used to derive the medicine digitalis—reflecting the muse’s profession, or perhaps indicating that the doctor used this drug to treat him.

In the same letter to his sister, he wrote: “I've done the portrait of M. Gachet with a melancholy expression, which might well seem like a grimace to those who see it... Sad but gentle, yet clear and intelligent, that is how many portraits ought to be done... There are modern heads that may be looked at for a long time, and that may perhaps be looked back on with longing a hundred years later”
