The Spinner – after Millet

The Spinner – after Millet

"It’s a great advance that my stomach is working well, and so I don’t think that I’ll be as sensitive to the cold. Then I know what to do when the weather is bad, as I have this plan to copy several things that I like. I’d very much like to see Millet reproductions in schools, I think there would be children who became painters if only they saw good things. Give my warm regards to Jo, and handshake, more soon." Ever yours, Vincent To Theo. Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, on or about Friday, 20 September 1889
