One of three paintings Vincent did of this particular water mill in November 1884. There was serious discussion of this painting not being a genuine van Gogh in 1955, but a 1968 museum journal provided the proof that this painting appeared in a 1903 exhibition of artworks that Vincent left in Nuenen when he moved to Antwerp.

The three paintings are all called Water Mill at Gennep and are as follows.

Water Mill at Gennep (F 46, JH 524)
Water Mill at Gennep (F 125, JH 525)
Water Mill at Gennep(F 47, JH 526)
