I say potay-to diggers, you say potah-to diggers. On our blog we have a new post dedicated to this painting which has gone by varying names since Van Gogh painted it in 1890, alternately The Laborers, The Potato Diggers, or The Weeders, as it is now known (painting is currently in the collection of the Foundation E. G. Bührle). Primary sources in our Walt Kuhn papers helped scholar Laurette E. McCarthy to identify this as one of the pieces exhibited at the 1913 Armory Show.
