Vincent van Gogh hardly ever painted animals as main subject of his paintings. His 'Cart with red and white ox' was probably inspired on Anton Mauve’s 'Carter on a Country Road’. Anton Mauve was his painting teacher in The Hague.

When Mauve died in 1888 Van Gogh painted 'Pink peach Trees' as an homage to his cousin and former teacher Mauve.

Today 138 years ago, on 20 July 1884,

Vincent van Gogh wrote to Theo van Gogh from Nuenen:

"I’m again looking forward very much to your arrival and to finding out what you’ll think of the work that I’ve done since. The last things I did are a couple of rather large studies of ox-carts, a black ox and a red and white one.”
