In the Picture 6

As soon as you see this bridge over a canal in the French town of Arles, you know it’s an icon. The reason it looks so familiar is that it was painted as “The Langlois Bridge at Arles” in several paintings by Vincent van Gogh, as you can see below.

Actually, it’s not quite that simple. The original bridge has gone and been replaced by another old bridge of the same design. It also stands in a different location from where it was in van Gogh’s day, and is now known as the Van Gogh Bridge (Pont Van-Gogh).
