The local experience of Vincent van Gogh in Drenthe, 1883
Became a global problem in 2020
Encountering a farmer, burning weed after clearing land
Vincent was fascinated by the Orange Colouring of the Dark World
of Burning Weed, because that’s what farmers still do
How much longer are we wearing Vincents shoes?
