Red Glove

Red Glove watercolour Andrew Henderson
Red Glove 24″x18″ watercolour

Vincent Van Gogh made two paintings of chairs in preparation for the visit of Paul Gauguin to Vincent’s humble abode in the south of France. The chairs were to be symbolic of Vincent’s and Gauguin’s personalities. Vincent’s chair was simple and on it sat his pipe. Gauguin’s chair was more elaborate and had a number of books resting on it. I wonder if Vincent had a Canadian friend if he might have painted them a chair resting in the snow, with a hockey glove dangling from it.
