Lane in the Public Garden at Arles

"At the moment I have another no. 30 square canvas on the go, a garden again, or rather a walk under plane trees, with green turf and black clumps of pines. You did very well to order the colours and the canvas, because the weather is superb, superb. The mistral is still there, but there are intervals of calm, and then it’s wonderful. If we had less mistral, this part of the country would really be as beautiful, and would lend itself as much to art, as Japan." To Theo van Gogh. Arles, Tuesday, 18 September 1888
