This is supposedly the first and the only painting by Vincent van Gogh which he sold during his lifetime. Against the sky-high prices we see now for a Van Gogh work, at the time Van Gogh sold it for 400 francs to a Belgian lady painter Anna Boch. She was a collector of good art-works and admirer of young artists of her time. Another painting owned by Anna Boch was The Peach Blossoms in the Crau. Vincent van Gogh painted this piece from his memory and some aspects of imagination. It was created at The Yellow House in Arles, France.
