Painted by Van Gogh
Depicting a church in Nuenen
, this painting showcases a beautiful yellow building
in between with people all around. In true Van Gogh fashion, no painting is ever complete without an element of nature
. And that is why you can see big trees
on both ends of the church. The clear blue
sky and yellow
and scarce leaves on the trees are an indicator of fall. Since Vincent’s father was a pastor, Vincent too was very religious and often went to the church. He believed in God, and there are many religious references spread across his paintings.
A personal inspiration
This painting was made by Van Gogh for his mother in an effort to make her feel better. Her thigh bone had broken, and she was on bed rest. To uplift her spirits, Vincent painted a small church with trees and hedges.
An X-ray analysis of the painting revealed that initially the trees were bare and there were peasants
outside the church. But later, Vincent added mourning churchgoers and leaves to the trees. It is possible that Vincent added these changes after his father’s death.
