Van Gogh Signatures

When we examine the signature from the painting in question, it is very similar to some of the signatures on Vincent’s other works, but I am unsure whether it is of the artist’s hand. This, of course, doesn’t necessarily mean the painting itself isn’t, as with View of the Sea at Scheveningen painted by Vincent, which sported a fake signature.

The likelihood of this painting (Farmhouse with Barn and Well) being a collaboration is exceedingly high; therefore, it would make sense for Vincent’s student and friend Anton Kerssemakers to add the signature, especially given the poppy colored red. Then again, it could also very well be Vincent himself. Signature analysis will determine who, when, where.

Vincent van Gogh and Anton Kerssemakers worked on several paintings together and, in fact, signed a joint painting in 1885, a small landscape scene titled Farmyard and Barns. Vincent, as his tutor, would often make adjustments or enhancements to Anton’s paintings.
