Langlois Bridge at Arles - Van Gogh

We just learned about the Van Gogh painting Bedroom in Arles.

Another group of paintings by Van Gogh is Langlois Bridge at Arles.

Van Gogh made 4 oil paintings, 1 drawing, and 4 water colors of this bridge.
When he was in France he saw this bridge over the water, and with the windmills drawbridges and cottages it reminded him of the Netherlands where he grew up.
