Christie’s is to auction Van Gogh’s Le Pont de Trinquetaille (The Trinquetaille Bridge) in New York on 13 May, with an estimate of $25m to $35m. This will be a rare opportunity to acquire one of the artist’s Arles pictures, his most sought-after period by collectors.

Painted in June 1888, it depicts the road bridge to the suburb of Trinquetaille, across the river from Arles. Van Gogh set up his easel on the quayside, just a few minutes’ walk from the Yellow House, the home that he would later share with Paul Gauguin. The riverside view was not far from where three months afterwards he would paint a nighttime vision, Starry Night over the Rhône (1888).
