The Langlois Bridge at Arles by Vincent van Gogh

In 1888, during his time in Arles, France, Vincent van Gogh created a number of paintings and drawings of the Langlois Bridge.

As for my work, I brought back a size 15 canvas today. It is a drawbridge over which passes a little cart, standing out against a blue sky – the river blue as well, the banks orange coloured with grass and a group of women washing linen in smocks and multicoloured caps.”
