Fishing boats on the beach at Les Saintes Maries de la Mer

Vincent Van Gogh's "Fishing boats on the beach at Les-Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer" was painted in Arles, France, 1888.

65 x 81 cm, Oil con canvas.

Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

The exaggerated crispness of the lines used to define the boats and the masts was Vincent's way of making the painting resemble a Japanese woodcut.
