Shameful that I haven't posted on this blog in more than a year. I'm going to try and be much more diligent about making new entries.

Having said that, today’s posting isn’t the most exciting. There are two changes that I’ve just made:

1. Still Life with an Earthen Bowl and Potatoes (F 118) is no longer dated to Nuenen in 1885, but rather to Paris around 1886. This change comes as a result of research undertaken by the Museum Boijmans-van Beuningen in Rotterdam. They determined that the pot seen in this painting is actually a pot that would be found specifically in Paris and not Nuenen.

2. Still Life with Scabiosa and Ranunculus (F 666) is no longer part of the collection of the Takahata Gallery in Osaka. Rather it’s now in a private collection. No further details unfortunately.
