This painting is said to be the only one sold by Van Gogh during his lifetime. The De la Faille catalogue raisonné (1970, page 221) says that The Red Vineyard was purchased by Miss Anna Boch (sister of Eugene Boch) for 350-400 francs. This long held belief, however, has been challenged in more recent years--most recently by German journalist Stefan Koldehoff in his extremely well researched book Van Gogh: Myth and Reality (2003).
