The church of Notre-Dame-de-l’Assomption is the object of the famous painting “L’Eglise d’Auvers-sur-Oise” by Vincent Van Gogh.
The artist lived the last weeks of his life in Auvers-sur-Oise where he painted about a hundred paintings. Van Gogh painted the church of Auvers-sur-Oise in June 1890, rejecting the perspective that is characteristic of the future expressionist movement.
The architecture of this small building, founded in the 11th century, is predominantly Gothic, with its pointed vaults and broken-arched windows. The church is classified as a Historical Monument.
