This painting is supposedly the only one Vincent van Gogh ever sold. Anna Boch, a painter herself, purchased it for 400 francs in 1888. When you go to Russia for the World Cup in 2018, you can check this beauty out at Moscow’s Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts.
Vincent used oil on burlap. Take that, Martha Stewart! Your take on the fabric for country-rustic stenciled curtains and high-backed chairs now bores me permanently.
