The Garden of the Vicarage at Nuenen

Vincent van Gogh, 1885

“I’ve also made another autumn study of the pond in the garden at home. There’s definitely a painting in that spot. I did already try to get it out once last year. The one I’ve made now is something of a stiff composition; two trees (orange and yellow) on the right, two bushes (grey-green) in the middle, two trees (brownish yellow) on the left. In front – the pond, black – foreground of withered grass. Background, a glimpse over the hedge onto a very bright green. A sky to harmonize with this in terms of power, in slate-grey and dark blue. They’ll certainly think it too black and too dark, but the time when one makes dark studies is always too short..”. See also: “The letters of Vincent van Gogh” no. 538, to Theo van Gogh. Date: Nuenen, Tuesday 3rd or 4th November 1885. (, Vincent van - Le jardin de Presbytère)
