|"Yesterday I did a drawing ... women and children at a hatch at the public kitchen |
where soup is sold." -- Letter to Anthon van Rappard. The Hague,
on or about Monday, 5 March 1883
The contents of this letter mostly concern technical details of Van Gogh's art: scrapers, painting stones, chalk (with which he mentions drawing this sketch), paper, and other art supplies. He also describes an art journal and works by a number of other artists, and mentions that he's rereading works by Dickens. All very fascinating details about the life of Van Gogh.
