Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam. 45 Letter from Vincent van Gogh to Theo van Gogh Paris, 31 May 1875 Dear Theo, Thanks for the letter I received this morning. Yesterday I saw the Corot exhibition. In it was the picture, “The Garden of Olives”; I am glad he painted that. To the right, a group of olive trees, dark against the glimmering blue sky; in the background, hills covered with shrubs and a few large ivy-grown trees over which the evening star shines. At the Salon there are three very fine Corots; the best of them, painted shortly before his death, “Les Bûcheronnes” [female wo odcutters], will probably be reproduced as a wo odcut in L’Illustration or Le Monde Illustre.

Regards to Ro os and to anybody who may ask after me, and believe me, always, Your loving brother, Vincent You are eating properly, aren’t you?
