The Red Vineyard

The Red Vineyards near Arles is an oil painting by Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh made in early November 1888. The painting is believed to be the only van Gogh painting ever sold during his lifetime and is one of his greatest works.

Paintings of the Red Vineyards were exhibited for the first time at the annual Les XX exhibition, 1890 in Brussels, and sold for 400 francs (equivalent to 1,500-2,000 US dollars today) to Anna Boch, an impressionist painter, Les XX member and collector art from Belgium. Anna is the sibling of Eugène Boch, an impressionist painter and friend of Van Gogh.

This painting was obtained by Russian collector Sergei Shchukin, and then nationalized by the Bolsheviks along with other Shchukin collections, and these collections were finally stored at Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts in Moscow.
