The Potato Eaters
Two years after he painted The Potato Eaters, Vincent still considered it as his most successful painting even after it was criticized by his friend Anthon van Rappard.
Vincent wanted to depict the peasants as they really were. He deliberately chose coarse and ugly models so that they would be natural and unspoiled in the finished work.
The Potato Eaters was considered by many as Van Gogh’s first great work of art. It was created when Vincent was only starting to paint and had not yet mastered the techniques that made him famous.

More about The Potato Eaters
The Potato Eaters was Van Gogh’s first known major work. It depicts five peasants inside a cottage dining on potatoes. They appear to be in conversation as they eat in a dark lit room. Vincent reportedly made a lithograph of the composition before he painted The Potato Eaters. A version of The Potato Eaters was stolen from the Kröller-Müller Museum in December, 1988. In April 1991, the final version was stolen but it was abandoned by the robbers a few minutes after the robbery. The painting is currently at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam
