Van Gogh in Private Collections

With an emphasis on SIMILARITY.

Many of Vincent’s works that resemble Farmhouse with Barn and Well are now in Private collections; for example Pollard Willows (or Birches) painted in Arles, April, 1889 – SPECIFICALLY if you look at the edges!

The paint colors at the top edge of FWBAW are VERY similar to Pollard Willows – As is the green, yellow, brown, red, grey and so forth.


The edges (pics below) are part of a completely different painting hidden beneath—perhaps also trimmed down from a larger work, thus creating a completely new one. We know Vincent repainted over several dozen of his works.

If one examines these paintings closely, you can CLEARLY see a significant resemblance in paint, brush strokes and execution.
