0 Justin Urbas - Rare Van Gogh Watercolor Acquired By Dutch Museum

There is some good news for Vincent van Gogh lovers. A painting thought to be the last known watercolor the artist produced in the Dutch town of Nuenen was recently acquired by the Het Noordbrabants Museum in The Netherlands. “The garden of the vicarage at Nuenen” rendered in the autumn of 1885, “occupies an important place in van Gogh’s oeuvre,” the museum said in announcing the addition of the “exceptional” work to its permanent collection.

Van Gogh (1853-1890) lived with his parents in the vicarage, or rectory, at Nuenen for nearly a year and a half, and the garden behind it was one of his favorite spots and where he produced a number of artworks, according to the museum.
