The first Van Gogh I saw



I was at the East Wing of the National Gallery of Art, and I went to the Tolouse-Lautrec and Mortmartre exhibit. I was just walking around, with this great feeling in my heart (I was so excited!) and I looked to my left (always) and I saw "Agostina Segatori in the Café du Tambourin".
I had to take a moment... Van Gogh is my favorite artist and I had never had the opportunity to see one of his paintings... and there I was, standig in front of one.

Meant the world to me.
