Hey, Marie, Thanks for sending the image to me!

This is in public view for the 1st time in 50 years. Van Gogh completed it a few weeks before he died in 1890 at age 37. It was in the private collection of the late millionaire Paul Mellon at the VA. home of Paul and Rachel Mellon. Rachel, 103, donated it this year.

It’s large for a  Van Gogh painting  at 2.5 x 3 feet. Everyone talking about it thinks it’s bright and incredibly beautiful! I’m planning on seeing it in person this week!
