Stevedores in Arles

It is not often that you encounter a painting by a world famous artist that you have never seen before. It happened to me a few weeks ago with one of my favourites, Vincent van Gogh. He created this masterpiece in 1888, two years before his death - foreshadowing expressionism even more than most of his work. More about van Gogh in the Wikipedia article linked to below.
