Marguerite Gachet in the Garden by Vincent van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh’s 1890 painting titled Marguerite Gachet in the Garden was one of nearly 80 works van Gogh completed during his two-and-a-half-month residence in Auvers-sur-Oise. Painting with unprecedented speed, Vincent van Gogh adopted a looser brush stroke and a lighter palette, reflecting the newfound freedom of living on his own. Marguerite Gachet in the Garden is painted as rapidly as any of Vincent’s Parisian experiments with Impressionist technique.

Auvers-sur-Oise appealed to Vincent not only because of the Gachets, but also because there was a strong artistic tradition in the town, going back to the plein air painter Charles-Fran§ois Daubigny.
