The incomparable Vincent van Gogh depicts one of the most historic windmills in the Hague, the Laak Windmill, in this incredibly detailed watercolor. This rare work is one of the very few the artist created during a crossroads in his life as he weighed pursuing life in the Church against his flourishing passion for art. One of only two watercolors van Gogh composed of windmills, this outstanding painting is a masterpiece of the technical prowess and artistic spirit of a man who would come to change the face of art forever.
