Undergrowth, Vincent van Gogh, 1887
Vincent van Gogh took off in the summer of 1887, leaving the heat of Paris behind. He worked with the painters Paul Signac and Camille Pissarro in Asnières along the Seine River northwest of Paris. Signac and Pissarro painted in the Pointillist style. Van Gogh used it for this rendering of undergrowth, with sunlight filtering through the foliage and falling on the dark ground.
