The Vegetable Garden, Anton Mauve, c. 1885 - c. 1888

oil on canvas, h 61cm × w 87cm. More details

Mauve called himself a real ‘outdoors man’. From 1884 he regularly painted the vegetable and fruit gardens of farms. He used a bright palette instead of the greyish tones he had favoured a few years earlier. The vegetable garden here displays a wealth of green tonalities. The white accents of the linen and the woman’s cap lend depth and freshness to the image.
