Nursery on Schenkweg

Vincent van Gogh Dutch

Not on view

Van Gogh's first commission came from his uncle Cornelis Marinus, an art dealer, for drawings of views of the Hague, where he was then living. This large view of a nursery close to Van Gogh's studio was among those he sent to Marinus in May 1882.
