Painting with bicycle found. Unfortunately, it’s a fraud!

Geocycle on the Thorn forum found the exact image I was thinking of. This is what I was looking for:

Fake bicycle poster with "Vincent van Gogh" background
Fake bicycle poster with “Vincent van Gogh” background

And this is what made me think of Vincent van Gogh, because he did paint the background.

Vincent van Gogh, Langlois Bridge at Arles
Vincent van Gogh, Langlois Bridge at Arles

Someone added a rider and a bicycle over a crude copy of a van Gogh scene. No wonder I couldn’t find it in the Musée d’Orsay!

Thanks to all who helped solve the puzzle for me by suggesting avenuses of investigation. Give Geocycle the big cigar!

  1. Just as well I have more friends than that poor manic depressive, Holmes, because not knowing was driving me to distraction. Thanks for your contribution, Doug: it was after I added the information you recommended that someone made the connection. Hallelujah!

Speak your mind!
