Van Gogh - Dr. Gachet

The right painting, that was confiscated by the Nazis as degenerated art and sold in 1990 to a Japanese industrial for 82.5 million U.S. dollars who died in 1996, is missing.
Van Gogh had given it to Dr. Gachet.
The left painting is the copy Vincent has made to himself and is now at the Musée d'Orsay, Paris France.
There are too many ironies in all of this.
