Sunny Lawn, Public Park – Garden with Weeping Tree

"Here’s a new subject. A corner of a garden with round bushes and a weeping tree, and in the background, clumps of oleanders. And the lawn that has just been mown, with long wisps of hay drying in the sun. A little corner of blue green sky at the top." Vincent to Theo. Arles, Thursday, 5 July 1888
