Le Blute-Fin Mill
(Zwolle (Netherlands), Museum de Fundatie; 1886)
Oil on canvas
55.2 x 38 cm.

The newly authenticated Van Gogh has gone on display 35 years after an art collector bought it in Paris, convinced it was painted by the famed Dutch master but never able to prove it. Louis van Tilborgh, curator of research at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, said “Le Blute-Fin Mill” was done in 1886. He said its large human figures are unusual for a Van Gogh landscape but it has his typically bright colors.

The Langlois Bridge at Arles with Women Washing
(Otterlo, Kröller-Müller Museum; 1888)
Oil on canvas54.0 x 65.0 cm.

Van Gogh thought of Arles as a French counterpart to the world he saw in the Japanese prints: clear air, blossoming trees, and the local people purposefully working in harmony with nature. He longed to see “nature under a brighter sky” to better understand what inspired the artists in Japan. He approached the subject of the Langlois Bridge mindful of the Japanese example, employing clear color and emphasizing the linear patterns of the bridge structure against the sky.
