The Gallery Diane de Polignac is delighted to have found the rare Vincent Van Gogh Artwork in a Private Collection which the Noordbrabants Museum acquired for 2.5 millions Euros.
This remarkable work was one of just three in private hands from a series of thirteen still lifes that Van Gogh painted from his parents’ home in Nuenen. Still Life with Bottles and a Cowrie Shell was amongst the works left in the care of the artist’s mother when he travelled to Antwerp in 1885.
Still Life with Bottles and a Cowrie Shell,
November 1884 – April 1885, oil on canvas laid on panel, 31.8 x 41.3 cm / 12.52 x 16.26 in.
This autumn the painting will be given pride of place in the museum’s remarkable selection of works from Vincent Van Gogh’s Brabant period.
