Cross-section of a paint sample from Van Gogh’s Daubigny’s Garden

The ground (the pink paint layer at the bottom) consists of a mixture of lead white and eosin.

Eosin is a synthetic dye, first produced in 1873. It is a compound of carbon, hydrogen, and bromine. When this dye is precipitated on a substrate (usually alum), it produces a pigment that can be used in oil paint. This pigment was sold under the name of Geranium lake, because it is similar in colour to geraniums. Even though Van Gogh knew that Geranium lake faded when exposed to light, he used it frequently. In eight letters to his brother Theo (from Arles, Saint Rémy, and Auvers-sur-Oise), he asked for Geranium lake from the Paris firm of Tasset et l’Hôte. In total, he ordered no fewer than 44 tubes!

Examination and analysis of  securely provenance primary source material such as artist’s palettes and paint boxes, allows for a wider understanding of the artists materials and techniques, and can be used to assist in provenance studies. As connoisseurship is only part of the art authentication pathway.
