Landscape at Auvers after Rain (1890)
«Landscape at Auvers after Rain (1890)»
Another title of the painting: “Landscape with Carriage and Train”.
By Vincent Van Gogh (1853-1890), Holland / Oil on canvas
Van Gogh lived at Auvers only for two months. Shortly before his death he painted on a horizontal canvas a golden field, with a narrow strip of the sky over it rendered in dark blue< intolerably blue. A flock of crows whirled over the field getting lower and lower; and bringing a sense of an imminent disaster. The road running across the field receded into the distance. Van Gogh went away by one of such roads, in despair of forthcoming new attack of his mental trouble. He shot himself and died at Auvers two days later, on July 29, 1890, in the arms of Dr. Gachet.
