Peach Blossom in the Crau - Description

Vincent van Gogh's paintings of orchards are some of his most hopeful and uplifting works. This painting, Peach Blossom in the Crau, showing a location to the northeast of Arles, is one of van Gogh's most impressionist works. The sky is the dominant feature in this painting, spreading down over half of the finished canvas. It is rendered in fast brushstrokes of blue, white and green, colors that reappear in the reflection of the sky in the river below. One small tree in the center of the painting bridges the gap between the two areas. Blue mountains bisect the frame, marking a clear delineation between earth and sky. Small yellow cabins with red roofs dot the landscape, with yards separated by white picket fencing. The bright white trees in blossom are painted with heavy white paint, indicating the promise of spring and warmer weather. The viewer is standing on a dirt road, also picked up with blue highlights. Vincent van Gogh wrote to his brother about this painting, saying: " The big one is a poor green landscape with little cottages, blue line of the Alpines, sky white and blue. The foreground, patches of land surrounded by cane hedges, where small peach trees are in bloom - everything is small there, the gardens, the fields, the orchards, and the trees, even the mountains, as in certain Japanese landscapes, which is the reason why the subject attracted me" (source: http://www.webexhibits.org/vangogh/letter/19/583b.htm).
