    Vincent van Gogh - Selfportrait

    Vincent van Gogh - Selfportrait

    Pablo Picasso - Petite chouette

    Picasso loved animals and one of his favourite subjects was the owl, which he depicted using many techniques and in various forms: from aggressive bird-of-prey to wise owl.

    Vincent Van Gogh - Bridge at Arles

    Vincent Van Gogh - Bridge at Arles

    Vincent van Gogh painted this 'Bridge at Arles' in mid-March 1888. We know this from the letters Vincent sent to his brother. He painted this bridge several times. This is one of the first studies in bright colours, with beautiful contrasts of blue and orange. In the foreground, you can see several women washing their clothes.
