Olive Trees with Yellow Sky and Sun - Vincent Van Gogh

Olive trees provide not only a source of nourishment for the body, but a source of inspiration for the soul, and for no one more than Vincent Van Gogh who painted at least eighteen works of art depicting them. Art historians believe that for Van Gogh, the olive tree was something sacred, symbolizing both the divine and the cycle of life. Here, the vibrant colors perfectly express the late afternoon hues of the Provencal landscape. Van Gogh's instantly recognizable brushwork with its generous use of paint seems to resonate his art with a visceral energy.

The artist

Né le 30 Mars 1853, à Groot-Zundert en Hollande, Vincent Van Gogh se destine d'abord à une vie religieuse. A 27 ans, après une intense phase de dépression, il décide de se consacrer uniquement à la peinture. Ses fréquentations et lieux de vie l'influenceront dans ses mouvances artistiques : post-impressionnisme, expressionnisme et fauvisme. Il part pour Paris rejoindre son frère, où il rencontrera Toulouse-Lautrec, Pissarro et Gauguin. En 1886, il déménage pour Arles et s'installe dans un atelier avec son ami Gauguin. Une violente dispute avec ce dernier le conduit à se trancher l'oreille. Conscient de ses crises de folie, il consent à l'internement en 1889 dans un asile religieux à Saint-Rémi de Provence. Deux mois après sa sortie, il se suicide d'une balle de revolver en 1890 à Auvers-Sur-Oise.
