While Theo and Vincent had several times swapped Vincent’s work for other paintings, and Vincent often bartered his paintings for meals or paint supplies, The Red Vineyard was the first and only Vincent painting sold for a decent sum of money in his lifetime. The painting was bought by Anna Boch, Vincent’s friend Eugène Boch's sister.
On 29th July 1890 Vincent van Gogh, then a little known artist; now the most famous artist in the world, died of a gunshot wound. His tragic death has long been known, what has remained a mystery is how and why he came to be shot. Loving Vincent tells that story.
