Olive Trees with the Alpilles.

Name: Olive Trees with the Alpilles.
Artist: Vincent van Gogh
Location: Museum of Modern Art, New York
Year: 1889

After suffering a nervous break-down during which he cut off a part of his left ear, Vincent spent one year at the asylum in Saint-Remy de Provence. Although it was a very difficult and depressing time for him personally, creatively he reached new height.

Whenever he was allowed, he would venture into the country side and paint prolifically. His colours and forms took on an exquisite subtlety and refinement that has never ceased to delight the viewer.
