A charming rustic scene showing country folk chatting in front of a cottage door. Vincent frequently painted similar compositions, often infuriatingly omitting to sign his works. This painting is unsigned. It has been in a private collection for nearly 30 years and prior to that has provenance from several leading Auction Houses. A copy of the 1990 Bonham’s sale catalogue is available to the purchaser.

In good clean bright condition. The canvas carries an old lining and there is mild craquelure to the paint surface.
