Red Vineyard at Arles… http://prints.icanvasart.com/LargeArtImage/1318.jpg

Happy Youth Art Month: Fun Art Fact of the Day: In a short period of only ten years Vincent van Gogh made approximately 900 paintings. He just sold one (maybe two) paintings during his lifetime “Red Vineyard at Arles,” around 1890 for 400 francs (about $1000 current US dollars). In terms of current value – it may be second only to Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa” – Priceless. . Visit ArtWithKorb.com for more information.
