EN - Anna Boch, artist and patron, bought the only painting that Vincent Van Gogh sold during his lifetime at the Annual Salon des XX in Brussels in 1890. He died the same year. Six months later, she purchased a second work. By doing so, she was the first to acknowledge the importance of Van Gogh when nobody else did. Both paintings hung in her studio. For years, she painted in their shadow, struggling with the presence of his genius. Finally, defeated by their strength and their audacity, she sold both works: such was their power, they had prevented her from developing as a painter.
