Synopsis:
Anna Boch, painter and patron, buys at the Annual Salon des XX in Brussels in 1890, the only painting that Vincent Van Gogh sold during his lifetime. He dies the same year. Six months later, Anna buys a second work. By doing so, she is the first to acknowledge the importance of Van Gogh, when nobody else did. Both paintings hang in her studio. For years, she paints in their shadow struggling with the presence of Van Gogh’s genius. Finally, defeated by their strength and their audacity, she sold both works. Such was their power, they had prevented her from continuing her own development as a painter.
