Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Maybe there are so many works by the Old-World Masters on display in Amsterdam, that street artists are very rare finds. While this picture is not of a city monument, the artist is a treasure by himself.

Painted by Vincent Van Gogh, this is one of his lesser known paintings called Seascape near Les Saintes- Maries-de-la-Mer and is obviously a smaller adaptation of his original work, purchased from the Van Gogh museum shop.

What made us select this over the others was the use of a multitude of blues and whites and the fact that the original (as seen magnified in the museum), contains grains of sand embedded in the paint that had stuck to it while it was still drying.
