NY Times: Impressionist visions near Paris

In the villages of Auvers-sur-Oise and Ornans, each a day’s train excursion from Paris, are the homes and studios of several celebrated 19th-century artists, including Vincent van Gogh, Charles François Daubigny and Gustave Courbet. These residences, carefully preserved for more than a century and open to the public, offer an intimate glimpse into the artists’ private worlds. I was delighted to find that both villages have continued their tradition as art colonies and remained relatively unchanged over the years.
