Public domain ← → Landscape with House and Ploughman Vincent van Gogh Date: 1889; France * Style: Cloisonnism Genre: landscape Media: oil, canvas Dimensions: 41.4 x 33 cm Location: Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg, Russia Tags: countryside, cottages-and-farmhouses, fields-and-plains, harvesting References: www.hermitagemuseum.org Order an oil painting reproduction Ad Image dimension 750x595px, View all sizes This landscape is unusual in its elevated, almost bird's-eye point of view. Such an angle can be seen as an attempt to look at the world in the Japanese way, natural for an artist obsessed with Japan. However, we cannot speak of serious influence here: Van Gogh's view was individual and came from his own impressions. The dynamism distinguishing this canvas is alien to Far Eastern landscapes. The painting has an enormous internal energy. The crossing diagonals forming the borders of the fields and the ploughed furrows, the contours of the roofs, the row of cypresses - such vectors strain the composition, but not so much as to disturb the unity of the whole. It is a study from nature. The colouring of the painting and the action of the figures show us that it was executed in autumn, a time when Van Gogh worked not only on the hospital grounds, but outside them as well.
