Vincent van Gogh Postcard
A Pair of Shoes
This modern postcard features a reproduction of Dutch post-impressionist Vincent van Gogh's painting 1886 A Pair of Shoes.
A fellow student in Paris reported that Vincent bought these workman’s boots at a flea market, intending to use them in a still life. Finding them still a little too smart, however, he wore them on a long and rainy walk. Only then were they fit to be painted.
The painting is currently on display in the Van Gogh Museum of Amsterdam.
