a portrait of one of my best friends, menah, for her birthday. i tried to portray her the way i know her best: carrying lots of things, always finding a way to do some kind of creative work together with anything else she’s doing, and taking careful and elegant steps anywhere she goes :)
My cat has been feeling neglected, and as a result, I cannot get her to stop jumping on my desk and clawing me in the face for attention. My resolution? Made a baby sling out of an old scarf for her. She seems quite comfortable.
The painting is unsigned, and had been previously been dismissed by the Van Gogh Museum in the 1990s. With the development of improved investigative techniques a two-year investigation was launched to determine the painting’s authenticity, eventually determining it as a true Van Gogh in September 2013. It was discovered that the painting was described in a letter to Theo, stating he had painted it the previous day, 4 July 1888.
It is the first full-size painting by Van Gogh to be discovered since 1928
