The Church at Auvers was painted by Dutch post-impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh in 1890. The church is in Place de l'Eglise, Auvers-sur-Oise, France. The Church at Auvers — along with other canvases such as The Town Hall at Auvers and several paintings of small houses with thatched roofs — is reminiscent of scenes from the northern landscapes of his childhood and youth. The foreground of The Church at Auvers is brightly lit by the sun, but the church itself sits in its own shadow, and "neither reflects nor emanates any light of its own.
