Pen and pencil sketch of Emil Bernard [facing camera] and Vincent van Gogh [his back to us] based on an old sepia photo.

bernard and van gogh

Vincent was a great lover of Japanese art and all things Japanese. He even created his own “Japan of the south.” The original photo must have been taken in cold wintry weather because both men are dressed in overcoats. I think I read somewhere that the location was by the River Seine.
