Van Gogh writes his brother Theo

Paris , 6 July 1875

"I'm renting a little room
in Montmartre I'm sure you'd
like. It's small , but it looks out
over a little garden full of ivy &
Virginia creeper. I'll tell you the
prints I have on the wall:

Ruysadel, Le buisson

Bleaching Fields, Van Ruysadael

Haarlem, with the Bleaching Fields.” c. 1670-75.


Rembrandt's Lecture de la bible....which I can't find

Portrait of a Lady, Ph. de Champaigne

Corot's Evening

Fountainebleau, Bodmer,-looking-towards-st--omer,-c-1824.jpg

A Road, Bonington

Tryon, Morning

STAY tuned.....he had more!

I read Irving Stone's bio of Vincent YEARS ago, and this post recalls it to mind. :)

Wow, the walls of his little place must have been covered with prints!
