Research and Reconstructions on Van Gogh paintings

Vincent Van Gogh painted mainly on plain weave canvas but three of his paintings are on a different texture and from the same bolt of canvas...
Two pictures of a sample of the recreation of that textile, handwoven in the Laboratory of Handwoven Canvas from Helena Loermans in Odemira.

Vincent Van Gogh usou quase sempre uma tela em tafetá mas três das suas pinturas são sobre tela com textura diferente e são da mesma teia tecida...
