L'Arlésienne, Madame Ginoux to be Auctioned
Have that bare spot on the wall that you just have to fill? How about a 26 x 21 masterpiece by Vincent Van Gogh. Christie's New York will auction off this important work by Van Gogh on May 2nd. It has been in the Bawkin Family collection and will come to sale with other Impressionist and Modern works in an evening sale. Expected to bring over $40 million, the painting was originally intended as a gift from Van Gogh to his friend and fellow painter, Gauguin. Painted while Van Gogh was in the Asylum at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, it is a portrait of a woman both men knew. The rest of the auction catalog has not been revealed, so look for some other fine works to come from this auction as well.
