An 1888 oil on canvas painting, Langlois Bridge at Arles with Women Washing, by Vincent van Gogh (1853-90), the Dutch post-impressionist artist. Painted in March near Arles in southern France, one of several studies of this bridge. The artist was careful to produce a precise perspective in this work, and the strong diagonal of the river was something he had admired in Japanese prints. The bridge, albeit a reconstructed version, can be seen at the site today. (Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo, The Netherlands)
