Vincent van Gogh - The Red Vineyard

'De Rode Wijngaard' ('La Vigne Rouge') by Vincent van Gogh

'The Red Vineyard' by Vincent van Gogh was painted near ArlesFrance in November 1888. It is in the collection of the Pushkin Museum in Moscow. It is supposedly the only piece sold by the artist while he was alive (to Anna Boch  for 400 Swiss Francs, about $1,600 today).

  1. I'm a really big fan of Vincent van Gogh, one of the great Dutch painters, a really inspired man. I haven't seen this painting before, thanks for posting it.

  2. I don't think I've seen this one either, fantastic colours and vibrancy.

  3. It's "funny" that this masterpiece is so unknown to the general public (of which I am part).

  5. A well-known Dutchman is he... I saw something recently, a new theory some authors developed which holds that Van Gogh was shot accidentally by some boys horsing around with a revolver. They had some pretty good circumstantial evidence collected. This is in contrast, of course to the standard notion that the painter committed suicide.
