The color shades, the techniques and the details of the painting, “Weaver Seen from the Front,” have been exactly replicated by us in our reproduction of Van Gogh. If you happened to stack up this reproduction against the original painting, you would be surprised about the similarity between the two.

We have carefully selected the best artists mainly from Holland, who can study Van Gogh’s works thoroughly and try their best to reproduce them the way they are. These are the very masterpieces that we have put up on our website.

Weaving as a Trade

Back in the 1880s weaving, especially in the rural areas, was not considered a prosperous trade. The income that a weaver earned depended upon the market conditions as much as they depended on the kind of crop yields for the raw materials.

It was a poor life that most weavers led, when compared to their urban counterparts in The Netherlands. With the development of industrialization, it became too difficult to imagine the kind of livelihood that the rural artisans would succumb to.

In his letter to his brother Theo, this is what Van Gogh had to say – “The life of weavers is tough. After putting hours of hard work every day a 60 Yard piece of cloth is what a weaver ends up making at the end of a week. While the weaver works on loom, his wife winds up the spools of yarn.

So essentially, it is a job of two, for whom this is the only way to make a living.”

Van Gogh’s view of Weavers

Van Gogh was in Nuenen when he made the painting, “Weaver Seen from the Front.” He had focused on making drawings and paintings of only the weavers for about six months’ time. He considered weavers as men who lived noble lives.


He observed their meditative appearance as they worked on the loom. In his letter to his brother that he wrote in 1883, he said that weavers hardly get time to philosophize about weaving, as they have to direct and interweave multiple threads at one time.

As per him, weavers get so absorbed into what they do that they actually feel how things need to move. The main focus of Van Gogh in this painting is on the weaver and his loom. It just feels as if someone is looking at this scene.

The painting does not tell you anything about the character, skill or the kind of emotion that the weaver is feeling while he works on the loom. Van Gogh has used different shades of brown to depict this painting in the best way.
