Orsay Museum devotes a nice exhibition to Henri Rousseau, said le Douanier Rousseau. His works are exhibited alongside those who have inspired him. This parallel allows the visitor to situate the artist, his time and his contemporaries. The most fascinating works are those in which he painted the nature and animals.

You probably know that Vincent van Gogh created a painting in the late 19th century called "Bedroom in Arles." It depicts the Dutch artist's electric blue quarters in what's known as his Yellow House, located, yes, in Arles, France.
You may also know that van Gogh actually created three versions of the now iconic bedroom image -- the first in October 1888, the second and third in September 1889.

Van Gogh's three "Bedrooms in Arles" are on view at the Art Institute of Chicago until May 10, 2016.
