By Martin Gayford, read by Jamie Glover.
Abridged and produced by Jill Waters.In October 1888, Paul Gauguin arrived in the town of Arles in the South of France.
His arrival at The Yellow House was greeted with delight by his host Vincent van Gogh.
Eight weeks of the most celebrated cohabitation in art history were to follow.
Vincent and Gauguin settle in to the Yellow House in Arles, domestic arrangements are made and paintings begun.
Work continues apace in the South of France but in a confined studio space, Vincent and Gauguin sometimes find their tempers fraying.
A day trip to an art gallery seems to offer a little respite from tensions between Van Gogh and Gauguin, living at 2, Place Lamartine.
Van Gogh and Gauguin quarrel and Vincent wields his razor.
The citizens of Arles lose their patience.
