The Seine was a recurring subject in Vincent Van Gogh’s artwork. In 1886, he made a whole series inspired by this river, painting in Clichy, Paris, and Asnieres. During the next year, the Post-Impressionist painter produced the colorful Bridges Across The Seine At Asnieres.
This painting portrays two bridges over the Seine on a sunny day. In the foreground, the artist depicts a waterfront with areas of vibrant yellow and some strokes of green vegetation. Subsequently, in the water, there are five empty rowboats in orange and yellow, some portrayed with a hint of dark red.
On the left side of the painting is a walled embankment supporting the bridge, painted in shades of yellow, orange-brown and blue. Above the embankment is a brick walking path overgrown with flowers and other vegetation, again represented with a bit of all of the colors previously mentioned. The main figure of the painting is a woman standing on this waterfront and looking out into the river. Her orange-red dress and parasol stand out from the blue and green background of the water. Beyond the woman, the painter depicts an unknown person in black, sitting in the shadows under the bridge.
The first bridge the viewer sees is mainly depicted with orange and green tonalities, although the middle section and the shadows cast on the bridge carry shades of blues and black. If carefully observed, you'll see Van Gogh was able to beautifully convey the reflection of the bridge on the water, mixing the complementary orange and green, with the many tones of blues from the water. A train is painted passing half-way across the bridge as if it were frozen in time. The painter uses dark colors, like green, blue, and orange, that contrast with the rest of the painting that is sunny and light. He also uses black on the train and to portray the smoke—this can be seen as a contrast between the colorful nature of the river and the dark and cold metal brought by industrialization. The second bridge is blue and green, almost blending with the colors of the sky, except the artist painted dark contours to make the visual separation.
