Vincent Van Gogh Houses At Auvers Fine Art Painting
Houses at Auvers is an oil painting by Vincent van Gogh, painted in June 1890, when he moved to Auvers-sur-Oise, a small town just north of Paris, France. Although considered iconic in the modern period, van Gogh only sold a single painting, yet he never ceased to paint. His work resulted in powerful and emotional canvases that contain more than the depicted subject. He painted 77 paintings during the period he was in Auvers, many of whose themes revisit his earlier interest in the lives of peasants and their cottages. He was particularly fascinated by old thatched roofs, which were picturesque and evocative, but even then were scarce. Houses at Auvers strikingly contrasts his textured treatment of a tiled roof with the adjacent thatched cottages.
