These are actually the same painting, both Van Gogh’s 3rd radiation of the 

Bedroom at Arles (Otherwise known simply as “The Bedroom”).  The second is simply a cropped and electronically tinted copy of the first.

In respect to Van Gogh’s actual work, here are the three renditions of the 

Bedroom at Arles:

Yes, that's the fresco! And if I remember…

Yes, that's the fresco! And if I remember correctly, the man,Enrico Scrovegni, who was offering the church built it to save his soul. His father was a userer so he made loans for people and Enrico made money from that too. Usery was a sin so he had to do something grand like have a church built to save himself. And Enrico's father was also mentioned in Dante's Inferno stating that he was in the 7th circle of hell! It's really interesting stuff !

Wow, thank you for the info! What a way to buy off a sin.
