The Old Mill - Description

The Old Mill was painted by Dutch Post-Impressionist Vincent van Gogh. It was completed in the year 1888. The Old Mill is a work of oil on canvas measuring sixty-four and one half by fifty-four centimeters. Van Gogh’s gift to the viewer in this painting is the use of an entire spectrum of colors. One can find rolling hills of blue, fields of green, auburn and yellow and a thatched roof of complimentary violet and pink. Van Gogh’s brushstrokes, emphatically slathered onto canvas, convey a sense of almost haunting ferocity at work. Brush strokes can be seen branching off in every direction, and this is most prevalent in the structure of the house as well as the swirling sky looming overhead. The brush strokes, combined with van Gogh’s generous pallet make this a true van Gogh masterpiece. Notice the two subjects huddled in the lower left foreground, what appears to be an elderly couple amidst a scene of such catastrophic color and brushstroke. The very earth beneath them appears to be moving as a feral sea of pigment and emotion. In the foreground, a river crosses, segueing from dark tones of blue and black into light hues of sky blue and white. The Old Mill is a fine example of how van Gogh’s colorful self expression would soon come to influence an entire generation of Modern painters.
