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.

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.

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...

Seamstress from Scheveningen, Etten 1881 - Vincent Van Gogh

This work of a country-woman sewing, painted in watercolour and heightened by white, was painted by Van Gogh partly while she was posing and partly from drawings. It shows how his understanding of the values of texture and tone produced a scene that is full of depth and interest while remaining simple. The marks are fine and produce...

Weaver Seen from Side, Nuenen 1884 - Vincent Van Gogh

In this painting. Van Gogh produces a very convincing interior painting reminiscent of Rembrandt in its tone and colour. With the clearly drawn framework of the loom set in the space of the small cottage of the weaver, the low-key colour values are realistic in their feeling of an unembellished working environment. ...

Peasants, miners, farmhands and cottage industries - Vincent Van Gogh

All his adult life Van Gogh identified with working men and women; the industrial workers, servants and farm labourers - even prostitutes - whose rights were least considered by the middle and upper classes but whose labour was demanded unquestioning. In 1876 Van Gogh became very keen to obtain 'a job between clergyman and missionary among working people in...

Old Man with Pipe, Nuenen 1883 - Vincent Van Gogh
