Van Gogh at Getty

For Vincent's birthday this weekend:  Wouldn't he have been amazed when he died and his paintings sold for pennies at all that this one (painted at the asylum at San Remy), when purchased by the Getty in Los Angeles (where I took this picture last year) a couple of decades back, would set a record at the time --more than $70 million, as I recall.  Fortunately, you can still visit and ponder.   Another tribute photo I posted last night.  My photo blog here.
