17.11.2016 Discussion on the Authentification of 1 of 65 Vincent Van Gogh Drawings

On Thursday 17 November 2016 was published by Seuil a book  called “Le Brouillard d’Arles”, edited by Bogomila Welsh-Ovcharov.

At the same moment, the Amsterdam Van Gogh Museum released a negative statement on the authentification.

Without any doubt, this scientific discussion is, whatever will be the conclusion, an inspiration for scholarship.

We compare one point which could become pieces of disproving/supporting evidence :

The Pont Langlois, (first drawing, Pont-X).

The Amsterdam Museum proposes an argument : “The house is on the wrong side of the canal”.

pont-1

The actual Pont Van Gogh bridge in Arles, (Point Kilometrique 2.470 on the “Arles to Bouc” Canal) is a reconstitution, the historic Pont de Langlois was in another location (Road D35 crossing, Point Kilometrique 0.520 on the “Arles to Bouc” Canal, destroyed in 1930, rebuilt in cement, le pont de Réginel , itself bombed down by German troops in August 1944).

Pont Réginel succeeded Pont de Langlois, Arles, 1932.
