Van Gogh had obviously wanted to paint Daubigny’s garden for some time. Following the study Van Gogh created two double-square canvas paintings of the full garden.  In a letter to Theo on July 10, 1890 he said,

“The third canvas is Daubigny’s garden, a picture I have had in mind ever since I came here.”

Then on July 23 he wrote,

“Perhaps you will take a look at this sketch of Daubigny’s garden – it is one of my most carefully thought-out canvases.”

 

Van Gogh’s paintings of Daubigny’s garden are vivid and filled with early-summer flowers and grasses.  They are composed of natural tones of pinks, greens and violets, staying true to Daubigny’s own devotion to nature.
