Vincent van Gogh painted cottages, peasants and wevers and churches. But Vincent didn’t need to travel much to find beauty. Just like when he painted the garden of the asylum in Saint-Rémy, the parsonage garden in Nuenen was sufficient artistic inspiration to Van Gogh. The laundry room was turned into a studio in the back of the house.

137 years ago, between 5 and 26 February 1885,

Vincent van Gogh wrote to Theo from Nuenen:

"I painted a few more studies of our garden when there was snow on it."

One of the two paintings of the parsonage garden in the snow is:
