Vincent van Gogh Olive Trees Art Print
ABOUT THIS PIECE
Post Impressionist Painter Vincent van Gogh's Olive Trees was created in 1889 and the original painting is in Museum of Modern Art New York. The original size of the work is 72,6 x 91,4 cm (28,5 x 36 in) and is made of oil on canvas.
In the blazing heat of this Mediterranean afternoon, nothing rests. Against a ground scored as if by some invisible torrent, intense green olive trees twist and crimp, capped by the rolling, dwindling hillocks of the distant Alps, beneath a light-washed sky with a bundled, ectoplasmic cloud. It is more powerful and imaginative than anything in later Expressionist art, which proceeded from a similar, emotionally charged vision of nature. It is also more attached to the real, for in the common movement that seems to issue from an underlying force, overwhelming all objects, these retain their individuality, their unique rhythms.
After van Gogh voluntarily entered the asylum at Saint-Remy in the south of France in the spring of 1889, he wrote his brother Theo: "I did a landscape with olive trees and also a new study of a starry sky." Later, when the pictures had dried, he sent both of them to Theo in Paris, noting: "The olive trees with the white cloud and the mountains behind, as well as the rise of the moon and the night effect, are exaggerations from the point of view of the general arrangement; the outlines are accentuated as in some old woodcuts."
The Artist: Vincent Willem van Gogh, (1853 - 1890), Dutch painter, generally considered the greatest after Rembrandt van Rijn, and one of the greatest of the Post-Impressionists.
