About

A painting by Vincent Van Gogh. "La Chaumière et une Paysanne Sous les Arbres" is an impressionist painting, oil on canvas in warm earth tones by Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh. Vincent van Gogh’s Le Chaumiére et une Paysanne Sous les Arbre is one of twelve oils in a group of paintings that depicts peasant cottages or more modest hovels with their characteristic thatched roofs. All were painted sur le motif from late May to early July 1885 on the sparsely populated heath near the small Dutch village of Neunen. Vincent had arrived here December 5 1883, initially taking refuge at his parent’s home from the debt and despair he had incurred at Drenthe. Despite declaring that “father and I are irreconcilable to the depths of our souls,” he stayed two years, and for an artist intent upon working at his usual frenetic pace produced an impressive 195 paintings, 313 drawings and 25 watercolors. Despite Theo’s encouragement to add more color, Vincent was convinced “that a painter of peasant life can do no better than follow the example of the Barbizon – dwelling and living right in the midst of what one is painting.” He revered Millet, worshiped Rembrandt, had deep fondness for Corot, Daubigny, Dupré, and had come under the influence of Anton Mauve and the Hague School known for their ‘warm, fragrant grays’. He had yet to see an Impressionist painting and could not conceptualize it. To Theo he mused that, “from what you said about ‘Impressionism’, I’ve grasped that it’s something different from what I thought it was, but it’s still not entirely clear to me what one should understand by it. But for my part, I find so tremendously much in Israëls, for instance, that I’m not particularly curious about or eager for something different or newer.” Provenance: F.W.R.
