Peasant Woman Cooking by a Fireplace was painted by Vincent Van Gogh in 1885. This work was painted in Nuenen in late spring 1885, just after Van Gogh completed The Potato Eaters (Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam), in the same dark hues that reminded the artist of “green soap” or a “good dusty potato, unpeeled, of course.” buy Van Gogh reproductions online
Van Gogh was “convinced that in the long run to portray peasants in their coarseness gives better results than introducing conventional sweetness. If a peasant painting smells of bacon, smoke, potato steam, very well, that’s not unhealthy; if a stable smells of manure, alright, that’s why it’s a stable. . . .” This painting can be reproduced by Daydaypaint.com..
