Still Life with Straw Hat - Van Gogh

We just learned about the painting Still Life with Earthenware and Bottles.

Another of Van Gogh's still life paintings was Still Life with Straw Hat painted in 1885 in Neunen.

When Van Gogh was teaching some of his friends in the town of Eindhoven how to paint, he made a bunch of paintings himself.
This painting shows some nice smooth brush strokes and lots of light and dark shading of colors.
