F 1c, JH 389

Another of the interesting and disappointing early paintings that seem to have vanished with little information and no decent photograph of the work. Vincent painted several paintings of cows early in his career. Though this one was previously considered from 1882, most now date it to August of 1883. In private hands since 1959 the current owner and location are unknown.
