About

A painting by Vincent Van Gogh. "Uitzicht over Den Haag met de Nieuwe Kerk" is an impressionist painting, watercolor, gouache, pen and brown ink on paper in a warm palette of earth tones by Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh. The artwork is signed in the lower left, "Vincent". In 1881 van Gogh arrived unexpectedly at the home of his cousin-in-law, Anton Mauve, the prominent realist painter associated with the Hague School. Mauve took the young Vincent under his wing and with all due haste ‘installed (Vincent) in front of a still life consisting of a couple of old clogs and other objects.’ He then set the newcomer to gaining likenesses from models to which Vincent gushed, “how marvelous watercolor is for expressing space and airiness, allowing the figure to be part of the atmosphere and life to enter it!” Courtesy of Mauve’s generous loan, by early January Vincent had his own studio. “Drawing is becoming more and more of a passion…Mauve has shown me a new way to make something, namely watercolors. Well, now I’m immersed in that, I’m daubing and washing out, in short, seeking and striving. For one must make desperate attempts because there is something diabolical about the execution of a watercolor.” In addition to a couple small watercolors, Vincent started a large one that ‘did not automatically go so well and easily straightaway.’ But it seems the rest of January would be devoted entirely to working with watercolor only — mostly in the service of achieving a reasonable facsimile of any model he could afford to hire. Although his artistic career lasted only a decade and he never received critical or commercial attention in his lifetime, Van Gogh has since become one of the most recognizable and celebrated figures in the history of western art. Van Gogh’s work is represented in the permanent collections of museums worldwide including The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Museum of Modern Art, New York; The National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Kröller-Müller Museum, Netherlands; The Phillips Collection, Washington DC; and the Portland Museum of Art, Portland. In 1973, the Van Gogh museum opened in Amsterdam, housing the largest collection of work by Van Gogh and quickly becoming the second most popular museum in the Netherlands.
