Opwettense water mill

  1. 25 May 1884

Vincent often went to the countryside to paint. In May 1884, he visited the Opwetten water mill between Nuenen and Eindhoven with his friend Anthon van Rappard. He probably began painting Watermill at Opwetten on this trip or as a result of it. The work is part of a private collection. Vincent also painted the water mill at Kollen.
