A Girl in the Street, Two Coaches in the Background (F13, JH179) is an oil painting by Vincent van Gogh. It is one of his very early works, painted in The Hague in August 1882, at a time when his brother Theo was encouraging him to paint landscapes in colour, rather than drawing figures. It is an early work to bear his "Vincent" signature, suggesting he was happy with the effect..

The work in an evening scene of a young blonde woman, with straw hat, dark jacket and skirt, and white apron, carrying a basket as she walks along a dirt road past two horse-drawn carriages which are waiting beside some trees, with some buildings visible beyond. It was probably painted en plein air, quickly, one evening, when Van Gogh stopped on a walk around the city with his easel seeking artistic inspiration.

It measures 42 by 53 centimetres (17 in × 21 in). It was bought by Arthur Hahnloser before 1913, and is still in the private collection at the Villa Flora in Winterthur.
