One of the earlier paintings originally attributed to van Gogh, this is also one of the most troublesome to find information about. The provenance seems clear enough as to ownership but without strong confirmation of dates, and the painting failed to appear in the de la Faille 1928 catalogue raisonné which is troublesome. In recent years the work has been considered by many experts to not be a van Gogh and the artist classified as unknown. Reference books published as recently a 1996 by Taschen still continue to include the painting along with the two catalog reference numbers. We include it here with reservations.
