There's a very important painting of a woman <hes> there's this wonderful painting from Russia of the prisoners at newgate eight which is a lovely <hes> link this to one of my favorites is a privately owned picture of a tree but it's very very striking and <hes> this quite a lot of Japanese influence in that picture and that's one one of the challenges of the exhibition because Vincent takes things like most artists do from different sources so the Pitch Abba Japanese influence an also an English inference at the same time yes there are magnificent pitches and financial dimension of tools the starry night over the Rhone from all say and last but not least the two self portraits and the most magnificent one is from the National Gallery of art in Washington indeed multi.
