Auvers Town Hall on 14 July 1890 by Vincent van Gogh

Town Hall at Auvers on the 14th of July 1890.

The town hall is in front of the Ravoux inn, where Vincent lived.

Only in 1880 did the 14th of July became officially the national holiday of France, to celebrate the fall of the Bastille on July 1789. In 1890 the catholic church and the rural population still opposed this public holiday. (http://www.tfsimon.com/auvers-sur-oise.html)
