Basket with Lemons, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

About the time that Van Gogh painted this picture he was just settling into the life of a painter in the Midi region of France. He had begun working outside and was painting landscapes but had not yet started on his portraits of the local inhabitants. This painting, to some extent, harks back to his Parisian ways of...

Vase with Sunflowers, Arles 1889 - Vincent Van Gogh

Gauguin considered that Van Gogh's sunflower paintings, of which there are several, were highly successful and should become his trade mark. Van Gogh wanted the Yellow House at Aries to be decorated in 'a symphony of blue and yellow' to greet Gauguin when he came to live with him. He intended that the sunflower paintings should all be...

Fritillaries in a Copper Vase, Paris 1887 - Vincent Van Gogh

Some of the first signs of Van Gogh's attempt to lighten and brighten his palette are found in his paintings of flowers in vases. He was very impressed by the painter Adolph Monticelli, who painted many colourful vases of flowers using thick, impasto paint and strong, even clashing colour combinations. Monticelli's critics were very rude about his loose...

A Pair of Old Shoes, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

This rather low-key colour composition of a pair of old shoes was painted at the height of Van Gogh's powerful, colourful and expansive period of work in Aries. Although his handling of the textural quality of the paint has much in common with other works being produced at this time, the very close colour range, even the lack...

Birds' nests, boots, flowers, fruits and utensils - Vincent Van Gogh

Van Gogfa is probably best known for his landscapes and portraits but it is his still life, Sunflowers (p.156), that really persists in the popular mind. Painters often use still life as a recourse to expression when other means are blocked, perhaps due to bad weather or the lack of a model. Again, when the mind is struggling for...

Dr Gachet Sitting at a Table, Auvers-sur-Oise 1890 - Vincent Van Gogh

Dr Paul (iachet was a physician and amateur painter, a friend of Monticelli and a collector of works by Cezanne, Pissarro and Renoir. Pissarro suggested to Theo, Van Gogh's brother, that the doctor keep an eye on Van Gogh while he lived near Paris so that Theo could visit him more easily. The doctor was obliging and encouraged...

Père Tanguy, Paris 1887 - Vincent Van Gogh

Pére Tanguy was the avuncular Paris art supplier and dealer who was a champion of unrecognized artists, often allowing them supplies in return for a painting. Most of his artist customers owed him money -a fact to which his wife was not always reconciled. He was widely liked and recognized by most of the young artists, and built...

Augustine Roulin (La Berceuse), Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

This is the motherly wife of Joseph Roulin the postman, mother of Armand, Camille and the newborn baby girl, with whom she was also painted. Van Gogh attempted several of these paintings at the same time and had quite a struggle to finish even one of them. ...

Armand Roulin, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

The portrait of Joseph Roulin's eldest son, Armand, gives a very nice picture of a young countryman endeavouring to show panache, with his dark, jaunty hat, yellow jacket and clean linen. His face gives away his youth, with its slightly uncertain look in the eyes and the wispy moustache barely disguising his soft mouth and rounded chin. ...

Camille Roulin, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

Van Gogh's series of portraits of the Roulin family included this painting of Joseph Roulin's youngest son, Camille, an eleven-year-old, whom he paints wearing a large floppy beret-style hat. The boy was probably pleased to sit as the rest of his family were being painted as well, and no doubt he would not have wanted to be left...

The Old Peasant Patience Escalier, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

This remarkable portrait of an old peasant is a very positive statement of the colour combinations that Van Gogh was now interested in. The bright yellow, thickly-painted straw hat and the sharply lined bright-blue smock contrast splendidly with the bright orange background; the colour of the south as far as Van Gogh was concerned. ...

Joseph Roulin Sitting in a Cane Chair, Three-quarter Length, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

Joseph Roulin was the local postman, and he and all his family were friendly with Van Gogh and sat for him. The family lived close to the Yellow House and Van Gogh decided that he would paint every member of the family. He wrote of making portraits '...of an entire family, that of the postman, of whom I...

La Mousme Sitting in a Cane Chair, Half-Figure, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

When Van Gogh moved to Aries, he was immediately enchanted by the whole atmosphere of the Midi region of France. He was convinced that here was the place where 'the painter of the future will be a colourist such as has never existed'. Describing one of his portraits he said, 'I imagine the man...surrounded by the whole Midi....

Lieutenant Milliet, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

Second Lieutenant Milliet became a good friend of Van Gogh while he was in Aries. Van Gogh wrote about him in letters on his luck in love affairs, '...Milliet is lucky, he has as many Artésiennes as he wants; but then he cannot paint them, and if he were a painter he would not get them. I must...

Self-Portrait in Front of an Easel, Paris 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

While in Paris Van Gogh produced several self-portraits when he was trying to think of how to earn a living as a painter. He thought that if he could display some good self-portraits, it might help generate some work. Unfortunately he managed to quarrel with many of his friends and acquaintances, which affected his financial situation. Instead he...

Portrait of a Woman with Carnations, Paris 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

This is one of Van Gogh's most extraordinary portraits, because it almost looks like a regression to an amateur style. However, the one big difference is the astounding range of colour, which previously had not been seen so clearly in his Paris work. It is almost as if this is a composition of primary colours, with the drawing...

Cypresses, St-Remy 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

Van Gogh made vigorous studies of the cypresses near St-Remy before he produced this painting, with its distant view across the landscape to the low mountains in the distance. He has taken the natural curl and sweep of the cypress trees and increased their undulations to create a flame-like flicker of dark tree shapes that seem to burn...

Fishing in Spring, Paris 1887 - Vincent Van Gogh

Van Gogh's exploration of the Impressionists' method of painting became highly effective in a very short time. This typical impressionist scene of a fisherman in his punt on the Seine was painted while Van Gogh was in Paris, where he was greatly influenced by contemporary, modern artists. ...

Landscape with House, Auvers-sur-Oise 1890 - Vincent Van Gogh

This extended landscape, with a reaper in the field and a carriage on the road, is full of activity and was painted in the final year of Van Gogh's life. Across the horizon, where the blue sky, put in with short brushstrokes, meets the land, a dark goods train travels across the picture, leaving a trail of pale...

AWalk in the Dusk, St-Remy 1889 - Vincent Van Gogh

This strange and rather unsettling painting, which looks like a sketch of an idea rather than a complete work, has a dream-like quality with its two figures, one gesticulating, walking through groves of olive trees with the hint of hills and cypresses in the background. The sky is lit by the setting sun, with a large, pale crescent...

Edge of a Wheatfield with Poppies and a Lark, Paris 1887 - Vincent Van Gogh

During his stay in Paris Van Gogh often visited the local countryside to paint landscapes where he was able to work on lightening his palette at the same time as he practised Impressionist techniques. His notes from this period mention his artist's appreciation for the colour yellow, which at Aries and later on played such a large part...

Landscape in the Rain, Auvers-sur-Oise 1890 - Vincent Van Gogh

This unusual landscape was one of Van Gogh's very last pieces of work. The yellow wheatfields, the blue-grey sky, the blue-green trees and hedges, and the pallid roofs of the houses look rather sad after the magnificent southern landscapes painted in the Midi region. ...

Field with Poppies, Auvers-sur-Oise 1890 - Vincent Van Gogh

In this particular painting, Van Gogh has used a stripped-down Impressionist technique that concentrates on expressing the mood of the scene as much as the light. The sky consists of deep blue and white brushstrokes, which sometimes mix and produce an intermediate blue tone. ...

Sorrow (Sien), The Hague 1882 - Vincent Van Gogh

This is a drawing of Sien, the former prostitute who shared a home with Van (iogh for a time while he was in The Hague. When Van Gogh took her in she was pregnant and addicted to drink. He was determined to save her from wretchedness and ill health, and after the baby arrived acted as its father....

Self-Portrait with a Bandaged Ear, Arles 1889 - Vincent Van Gogh

This self-portrait was painted soon after Van Gogh's break with Gauguin and his self-mutilation episode, and shows his gaunt features after leaving the asylum. The hat hides his shaven head and the bandage on his injured ear. Van Gogh, writing just before he left the hospital, appeared quite detached regarding the situation, as the following extracts from his...
