One of Vincent van Gogh’s early paintings has been sold for over seven million Euros in Paris, the Artcurial auction house said on Tuesday, making it the most significant selling of this Dutch painter in France in the last 20 year.

The buyer is an American art collector who paid 7.65,000 Euros for the “Women Mending Nets In The Dunes” which Van Gogh painted in 1882 when he was 29 years of age.

The starting price was between three and five million Euros.

The previous auction of Van Gogh’s painting was in Paris in the mid-‘90s when “Doctor Gachet’s Garden in Auvers “ was sold for 10 million dollars.

The Dutch painter, who decisively influenced artists in the 20th century, committed suicide in 1890 when he was 37 and became famous posthumous.
