Painted in Arles, it is one of the paintings Van Gogh was most proud of and among the most beloved of his works. The Van Gogh Museum says: “Old gaps in the painting, caused mainly by water damage in Van Gogh’s studio, were carefully repaired using stable materials…The colours have gained a new intensity and the painting looks much clearer. It is now a much better reflection of the artist’s original intentions and can once more be admired by the public.”
