Women’s History Month in Visual Arts~ March 14

The Water Carrier by Anna Boch

c.1900 / Oil on canvas / 13”x9 4/5” / Private collection

Besides her own paintings, Boch held one of the most important collections of Impressionist paintings of her time. Popular lore says that Van Gogh sold only one painting (The Red Vineyard) in his lifetime and that it was to Anna Boch. Although Boch did indeed buy this painting, Vincent actually ‘sold’ quite a lot of work during his lifetime.
