Vincent Van Gogh’s painting Avenue of Poplars at Sunset in one of his earlier works, done in 1884. During this period, he was still living in his hometown of Brabant, in the south of the Netherlands. The Post-Impressionist artist was very inspired by Dutch painters of the XVII century and their nighttime landscapes, like Rembrandt for example. Van Gogh begins to paint only at the age of 27 in 1880 and works for about ten years, until his death.
This painting shows Van Gogh’s love for the suns effect on landscapes. As a Post-Impressionist, he wished to capture the optical effect that light has on objects and the environment. He gradually became more daring with his compositions and color pallets, as he collected more artistic knowledge and references. His contact with other Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Pointillist artists genuinely inspire his work. He also collects many paintings and prints, especially Japanese artwork that influences his use of strong colors and unusual compositions.
Not as bold as his later works, Avenue of Poplars at Sunset translates the path the painter takes in his artistic career. His love for light and color is already apparent, as he timidly inserts combinations of complementary colors. The sunset is portrayed in gradient shades of blue, green and orange, with the sun creeping up on the horizon in bright orange paint. As we compare this sky to the sky portrayed in his later work Starry Night, notice how he is not yet concerned in the sense of movement he can achieve. His brush strokes are not as visible and have thin layers of paint – possibly an influenced by a more Classic painting technique.
The poplar trees are positioned in two rows, making a path that leads to the sunset. The trees are dark brown and don’t vary too much in color or tonalities, except for a few red-orange specks of paint. Van Gogh paints this same tree in many other works with different atmospheres, for example, Two Poplars on a Road Through the Hills in which he concludes in the last year of his life. The horizon is also dark, and the path reflects a bit of the sunlight – being that the painter lets his brush strokes show more in this area. There is a dark and mysterious figure walking along the road that looks to be holding something.
