 (Female Nude, Back View), oil on canvas painting by Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890), painted in Paris in the beginning of 1887, 61 cm x 38 cm, private collection.
Weiblicher Rückenakt is one of a few nudes painted by Vincent van Gogh in the first half of 1887, when he came to Paris to promote his career as a painter. He used to take his meals at Café du Tambourin, a café-cum-restaurant owned by the Italian woman Agostino Segatori, who was his lover for a short period. She had also posed for his famous painting Agostina Segatori Sitting in the Café du Tambourin, and possibly for a few nude paintings done by him in this period.
Parigi, collezione privata.








Nude woman on a bed (early 1887), oil on canvas painting (oval) by Vincent van Gogh, 73 cm x 59.5 cm, The Barnes Foundation, Merion, Pennsylvania, USA.
The oil painting titled ‘Nude woman on a bed’ was painted by Vincent van Gogh in the first half of 1887 during his stay in Paris. The model for the picture was probably the Italian woman Agostino Segatori, who was earlier an artist’s model and who owned Café du Tambourine in Paris. It was the time he landed in Paris, and used to take his meals at the café of Agostino. As he was hard-pressed for money, he used to pay for his meals with his paintings. Also, allegedly, he had a short-term affair with her, and painted a number of her pictures, including some of her nudes.

Recumbent nude (Liggend naakt, or Liegender Akt), oil on canvas painting of 1887 by Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890), 41 cm x 24 cm, at Kröller-Müller Museum located in Hoge Veluwe National Park in Otterlo in the Netherlands.
Vincent van Gogh painted the ‘Recumbent nude’ (Liggend naakt) during his stay in Paris in 1887. As the title suggests it is the picture of a female nude, the title of which has also been referred to as ‘Nude woman on the bed’, or ‘Naakte vrouw, liggend’ (Nude woman lying on a bed).
Van Gogh is believed to have painted at least two versions of Liggend naakt. An oval version (73 cm x 59.5 cm) is in The Barnes Foundation, Merion, Pennsylvania, USA.
The artists’ model posing for van Gogh is probably the Italian woman Agostino Segatori with whom van Gogh is believed to have had an affair for a short period. The artist had also painted a portrait of her, ‘Agostino Segatori Sitting in the Café’ (1887), and she posed as a model for some other paintings by van Gogh as well.
