1887 paintings

Van Gogh lived with his brother in Montmartre, located above the city of Paris it afforded him a beautiful view of the Paris skyline, which he painted several times. Two of the paintings were made in 1887. The second painting View from Vincent's window was made from a similar vantage point to the titled painting View of Paris from Vincent's Room in the Rue Lepic of this article.

1886 painting

An earlier painting was made of the view from his window titled Roofs of Paris or View of Roofs and Backs of Houses. Van Gogh had become aware of Impressionism soon after arriving in Paris, but it took a while before he assimilated the knowledge into his work. This early view of his window reflects the dark colors he had been accustomed to using, subdued browns and grays for the roofs and the backs of the houses. In it Van Gogh appears to focus primarily in the color graduations of the houses and rooflines.
