8-1-1887 Trees and Undergrowth Painting, Oil on Canvas Paris: Summer, 1887 Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam, The Netherlands, Europe F: 309a, JH: 1312

In Trees and Undergrowth (F309a) Van Gogh portrays the play of light falling through the trees to the low-lying plants in highlights of white, yellow and red. The effect of the light and shade produces many shades of green which Van Gogh paints in short brushstrokes across the canvas. A horizon line is suggested by a line of yellow, suggesting a clearing beyond the cropping of trees and foliage (“Trees and Undergrowth, 1887”. Permanent Collection. Van Gogh Museum. 2005—2011.
