Van Gogh painted The Green Vineyard on 3 October 1888 and The Red Vineyard on 3 November 1888.

Today 133 years ago, on 30 August 1888,

Vincent van Gogh wrote to his brother Theo from Arles:

"We’ve had two or three glorious days here, very hot, with no wind. The grapes are beginning to ripen, but you hear people saying they won’t be good.”

One month later Van Gogh painted 'The Green Vineyard' and two months later the famous ‘The Red Vineyard’, which may be the only painting he ever sold.
