Portrait of Theodorus Van Gogh (Van Gogh's father), Etten 1881 and Portrait of the Artist's Mother (from a photograph), Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

These portraits were painted seven years apart, and his father was dead by the time Van Gogh painted his mother's portrait. The picture of Theodorus was painted at Etten and offers a rather cold, unsympathetic view of the clergyman, who seemed to find his eldest son more of a trial than a benefit. ...

Marguerite Gachet at the Piano, Auvers-sur-Oise 1890 - Vincent Van Gogh

This thickly-painted portrait or the daughter of Dr Cachet, Van Gogh's doctor and friend at Auvers-sur-Oise, shows that in his latter days he enjoying the civilized attentions of the small community that surrounded him. Some believe that Mademoiselle Gachet was in fact rather fond of Van Gogh. By this time, though, he seems to have felt himself beyond...

The Garden of Saint-Paul Hospital, St-Remy 1889 - Vincent Van Gogh

This famous painting is the garden of the hospital where Van Gogh placed himself in order to be under the care of his doctor. While there, he continued to paint although his paints were confiscated on occasion as during the worse times of his illness he would try to eat them - an action that could have poisoned...

Gauguin's Chair, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

Van Gogh painted Gauguin's chair first, as a celebration of his friend coming to live with him in the Yellow House at Aries. This chair suggests a different character altogether, and one which Van Gogh appears to have found rather impressive. The chair was probably the best one in the house, being of a more sophisticated design than...

Vincent's Bedroom, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

The famous painting of Van Gogh's bedroom in Axles has been reproduced so often that it is as familiar to many people as if they had lived there themselves. The rather small, plain room, which holds just a bed, a small table and a couple of chairs, is drawn and painted with Van Gogh's concept of Japanese prints...

The Yellow House, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

The Yellow House was where Van Gogh hoped to start a colony of artists dedicated to painting the sun-drenched south of France, possibly when on the way to Africa. He said that he would have liked to go to Africa had he been younger, but felt that Prance was the furthest he could venture. This was partly due...

The Zouave, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

This is a portrait that Van Gogh found very hard to paint because of the difficulty of putting together the strong colours of the uniform that contrasted with the ruddy brickwork beneath his feet. Certainly the red fez, the piping on the dark blue jacket and the soldier's suntanned face create sharp colour contrasts that could easily flatten...

Cafe Terrace at Night at Arles, 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

This painting is only one of Van Gogh's evocations of a southern night lit by a starry sky. The sky glows behind the darkened houses whilst in the foreground is the brilliantly-lit terrace of the local cafe with lamps, tables and chairs and people seated at the far end enjoying the warm night. ...

Landscape Near Montmajour with a Train, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

This drawing demonstrates that Van Gogh had by now developed a masterly grasp of perspective. Drawing purely by eye, he no longer needed to use mechanical aids to help him. Drawing with ink in the open air is quite a feat in itself, but Van Gogh's vision was perceptive. He had the ability to make certain features jump...

Fishing Boats on the Beach, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

'I have only been here a few months, but tell me this, could I in Paris, have done the drawing of the boats in an hour? Even without the perspective frame, I do it now without measuring, just by letting my pen go...'. ...

Starry Night, St-Remy 1889 - Vincent Van Gogh

'One night I went for a walk by the sea along the empty shore. It was not gay, but neither was it sad...it was...beautiful. The deep-blue sky-was flooded with clouds of a blue deeper than the fundamental blue of intense cobalt, and others of a clearer blue, like the blue whiteness of the Milky Way. In the blue...

Drawbridge with Carriage, Arles 1888 - Vincent Van Gogh

When Van Gogh first arrived in Aries in February 1889 the whole of the Midi region was covered in snow. It had been one of the coldest winters for a long time and it lasted well into March. It was not until April that he was able to paint outside properly, and then we begin to see the...

Self-Portrait with Grey Felt Hat, Paris 1887 (after Seurat, Pissarro) - Vincent Van Gogh

This is one of the many self-portraits that Van Gogh painted while he was in Paris in 1887. He was beginning to experiment with new painting techniques, in this case with what might be called Neo-Impressionist or perhaps Semi-Pointillist. His short stabbing brush-marks are evidence of his attempt to encompass the ideas and techniques developed by the Impressionists...

The Bridge in the Rain and Flowering Plum Tree, Paris 1887 (after Hiroshige) - Vincent Van Gogh

Van Gogh painted these images when he was working from Japanese colour prints. The prints had taken the art world of western Europe by storm. They certainly fascinated Van Gogh and influenced his style: he owned twelve of these sorts of images and had several on the walls of his studio. ...

The Dance Hall at Arles - Vincent Van Gogh

In this evocative painting of figures flooding across the dance hall in Aries, Van Gogh emulated themes used by Renoir and his friend Toulouse-Lautrec. The flat handling of the colour contrasts follows a similar direction to Toulouse-Lautrec's graphic paintings of the Moulin Rouge series, while the cheerful colour and crowds of bodies are reminiscent of Renoir's Moulin de...

The Arlesienne (Madame Ginoux), St-Remy, 1890 (after Gauguin) - Vincent Van Gogh

This portrait of Madame Ginoux from the cafe in Aries was painted by Van Gogh directly from a drawing of Gauguin's that he admired. While at Aries Van Gogh said that he 'was powerless to paint the women of Aries as anything but poisonous', which was directed at Degas who had talked of 'saving myself up for the...

The Good Samaritan, St-Remy 1890 (after Delacroix) - Vincent Van Gogh

Van Gogh likened himself to Delacroix towards the end of his life when he knew he had little time left. Like Delacroix, Van Gogh worked as one possessed, pouring forth drawings and paintings at an impressive rate: 'I discovered painting when I no longer had any teeth or breath left...' ...

Noon: Rest, St-Remy 1890 and The Sower, Etten 1881 (after Millet) - Vincent Van Gogh

Throughout his life Van Gogh referred to paintings by the French painter Millet, who was a strong influence in his life. He made copies of works by Millet throughout his career, originally with similar colour values but later on with more intense colour, thus changing the effect of the picture. The sower in Millet's painting was a rather noble...

Breton Women and Children, Arles 1888 (after Bernard) - Vincent Van Gogh

In this painting Van Gogh was observing and trying to learn from Bernard, a painter he had met in Paris and become friendly with. Bernard and Gauguin (another of Van Gogh's artist friends) had been to Brittany to paint the local figures in their traditional costumes and had tried to ignore the normal rules of perspective, producing works...

Pictures after Bernard, Millet, Delacroix, Gauguin, Renoir, Seurat, Pissarro and Hiroshige - Vincent Van Gogh

Van Gogh's correspondence with Theo gives plenty of hints as to the influences that guided his artistic career. Sometimes he reeled off whole lists of artists who had caught his eye, many of whom have since drifted out of fashion and been forgotten. He very much admired the illustrations of The Graphic and the Illustrated London News, and every...

Peasant Woman Winding Bobbin, Nuenen 1884 - Vincent Van Gogh

Van Gogh kept on working on the theme of the local peasant population of Nuenen and continued to draw from life. This painting of a woman winding a bobbin is similar to other works he produced of peasant weavers in their cottages. These paintings are typified by their very low-key colour values and are almost tonal paintings, which...

Peasant Woman Stooping and Gleaning, Nuenen 1885 - Vincent Van Gogh

Van Gogh's studies of peasant women, bent over, working at a tiring activity, give the viewer an understanding of his models. This black-chalk drawing demonstrates the strong compositional tendencies that his drawings were now showing. It is drawn to a very high standard, especially the massing of shapes to create powerful expressions of the activities. His chalk strokes...

Peasant Woman Digging, Nuenen 1885 - Vincent Van Gogh

The strong figure of the bent woman digging her spade into the earth is beautifully set against the sunlit hay in the field behind her. The dark, upper part of the background suggests trees and helps to throw into emphasis her sunlit haunches, back and head, giving a strong sense of dimension and substance. ...

Women Miners, The Hague 1882 - Vincent Van Gogh

This watercolour heightened with white is a bleak picture of the laborious toil of these women who carry heavy bags of coal on their heads and shoulders and trudge through the snow of a cold Netherlands winter. The drab browns and blues of the dark figures clearly silhouetted against the snowy ground, the regular bare trees spaced out...

Man Pulling Harrow, Drenthe 1883 - Vincent Van Gogh

This early drawing, included in a letter to his brother Theo, has an element of Van Gogh's later symbolic theme of a lone figure in a field. This particular figure does not appear to have any real symbolic meaning, but its dominating presence in the flat landscape is obviously something which struck Van Gogh as central to the...
