Van Gogh - Landscape at Twilight
Vincent van Gogh (1853 - 1890), Auvers-sur-Oise, June 1890

Vincent van Gogh (1853 – 1890), Auvers-sur-Oise, June 1890

oil on canvas, 50.2 cm x 101 cm

Van Gogh made this evening landscape in the fields near Auvers, with a view of the local castle. He rendered the tangled black branches of the pear trees with a flurry of black brushstrokes. This reinforces the contrast between the dark trees and the luminous yellow sky.

The painting seems somewhat like a panorama because of its wide format. It is one metre wide and 50 centimetres high. Starting in June 1890, Van Gogh made a total of thirteen works with these dimensions. All but one are landscapes. He cut the canvases himself from a large roll.
