In 1886 Vincent moved to Paris to live with his devoted brother Theo. He was an art dealer and introduced his brother to painters such as Gauguin, Pissarro, Seurat, and Toulouse Lautrec. Van Gough had his own ideas on painting but adapted some of the Impressionist techniques and turned them into his own style.
His palette brightened and his colours became much more vibrant. One can see the brushstroke, that later became so distinctive, for the first time. He painted flowers, the streets of Paris and portraits of his friends.
