Van Gogh Peasant Woman Cooking by a Fireplace

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..

Van Gogh Woman Rocking a Cradle

Woman Rocking a Cradle was painted by Vincent Van Gogh in 1889. Of the five versions of Van Gogh’s portrait of Augustine Roulin, wife of his friend the postmaster of Arles, the present canvas is the one the sitter chose for herself. Van Gogh remarked that “she had a good eye and took the best.” He began the portraits just before his breakdown in Arles, in December 1888, and completed them in early 1889.  buy van gogh replicas online

As he worked on the successive versions, the composition (which he titled La Berceuse, meaning “lullaby, or woman who rocks the cradle,” indicated by the rope the sitter holds) took on added meaning. As he revealed in his letters, the maternal image became the locus of literary and symbolic associations, ranging from the writings of Dutch and French novelists to the consoling music of Berlioz and Wagner. Van Gogh envisioned La Berceuse as the center of a triptych, flanked by Sunflowers, like candelabra. This painting can be reproduced by Daydaypaint.com.

Van Gogh Paintings The Zouave

Van Gogh The Zouave

The Zouave was painted by Vincent Van Gogh in 1888. During a spell of torrential rain that interrupted his harvest series (June 20–24), Van Gogh made his first real effort at portraiture in Arles. Two days into his campaign, he announced to Theo: “I have a model at last a Zouave a boy with a small face, a bull neck, and the eye of the tiger.” The present work served as a color study for his bust-length portrait of the dashing young soldier.  Van Gogh paintings for sale

In the oil painting, Van Gogh heightened the “savage combination of incongruous tones,” fleshed out the character’s likeness, and placed him in a convincing setting. That July he sent the watercolor, with dedicatory inscription, to his “comrade Émile Bernard.” This painting can be reproduced by Daydaypaint.com.

Van Gogh Paintings Madame Joseph-Michel Ginoux

Van Gogh Madame Joseph-Michel Ginoux

Madame Joseph-Michel Ginoux was painted by Vincent Van Gogh in 1888-89. Marie Ginoux was the proprietress of the Café de la Gare, where Van Gogh lived in Arles between May and September 1888, before he moved into the nearby Yellow House. In early November, wearing the regional costume of the legendary dark-haired beauties of Arles, she posed for both Van Gogh and Paul Gauguin. Van Gogh was thrilled to “have an Arlésienne at last” and quickly “slashed on in an hour” his first, more summarily executed version of this portrait (Musée d’Orsay, Paris), using the thick jute canvas that Gauguin had brought with him to Arles.  buy van gogh replicas online

Later, Van Gogh enhanced that image by adorning the tabletop with two accessories befitting an Arlésienne: a parasol and gloves. Those finishing touches were probably added in December 1888 or January 1889, when he revisited the composition to use it as the prototype for the Museum’s painting. Relying on more saturated and richly applied colors to add substance to the character of his sitter, and showing her seated at a table with books, Van Gogh made this more compelling portrait of his friend which he gave to her.

Van Gogh A Corridor in the Asylum

A Corridor in the Asylum was painted by Vincent Van Gogh in 1889. This haunting view of a sharply receding corridor is the artist’s most powerful depiction of the asylum of Saint-Paul-de-Mausole in Saint-Rémy, where he spent twelve months near the end of his life and where he painted the Museum’s oils of olive groves, cypresses, roses, and irises.  buy Van Gogh reproductions online

The buildings (largely remains of a twelfth-century monastery) were divided into men’s and women’s wards, but most of the small cells looking out on the neglected garden were empty when Van Gogh was there. One of the rooms he was able to use as a studio. The artist sent this unusually large and colorful drawing to his brother Theo, to give a picture of his surroundings.

Van Gogh Paintings Cypresses

Cypresses was painted by Vincent Van Gogh in 1889. Shortly after Van Gogh began his yearlong voluntary stay as a patient in the asylum in Saint-Rémy. The subject, which he found “as beautiful of line and proportion as an Egyptian obelisk,” both captivated and challenged the artist: “It is a splash of black in a sunny landscape, but it is one of the most interesting black notes, and the most difficult to hit off exactly that I can imagine.”  buy Van Gogh reproductions online

Van Gogh’s initial fascination with cypresses resulted in three paintings: two showing the “big and massive trees” at close range, in vertical format (this and one in the Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo), and a majestic horizontal view, Wheat Field with Cypresses (1993.132), which he later repeated in two variants.

Van Gogh First Steps

First Steps, after Millet was painted by Vincent Van Gogh in 1890. In fall and winter 1889–90, while a voluntary patient at the asylum in Saint-Rémy, Van Gogh painted twenty-one copies after Millet, an artist he greatly admired. He considered his copies “improvisations” or “translations” akin to a musician’s interpretation of a composer’s work.  Van Gogh paintings for sale

He let the black-and-white images whether prints, reproductions, or, as here, a photograph that his brother Theo had sent “pose as subject” then “improvised color on it.” For this work of January 1890, Van Gogh squared-up a photograph of Millet’s First Steps and transferred it to the canvas.
