Girl in White - Vincent Van Gogh. 66.7x45.8
Every post-impressionist work Vincent van Gogh autobiographical. The insane artist just left the hospital and tried to start painting again, although he lived in constant expectation of a new attack. In letters to his brother, Van Gogh admitted that he can only depict sadness and endless loneliness.
Perhaps, in this canvas, the painter decided to embody the image of his soul, expressing all his sorrows and feelings in the form of a peasant girl. This is one of the most soulful and beautiful paintings of the artist. The girl’s fragile body, her long, thin arms with large disproportionate hands, lowered shoulders, the stray look of large eyes - all this conveys a feeling of longing. And although the tender greens of summer spread around the heroine, she stands among the ears of wheat, as if abandoned by all, the lonely spirit of the fields. Bread and poppy flowers were written by Van Gogh in an abstract and at the same time recognizable. It is known that the master worked on the picture more than usual, trying to portray various green tones of cereals swaying under a gust of wind.
