The Parsonage Garden at Nuenen in the Snow

The Parsonage Garden at Nuenen in the Snow

"I painted a few more studies of our garden when there was snow on it. The landscape has changed greatly since then — we now have magnificent evening skies of lilac and gold, above the tonal silhouettes of the houses between the masses of the coppices, which are a ruddy colour, above which rise slender black poplars — while the foregrounds are blanched and bleached green, varied by strips of black earth and dry, pale reeds along the sides of the ditches." Vincent To Theo, Nuenen, between about Thursday, 5 and about Thursday, 26 February 1885
