Vincent Van Gogh’s painting Landscape At Auvers In The Rain was done in 1890 and was one of the last works the artist finished before his death. He moved to Auvers after staying about a year in an asylum treating his health. Although he never stopped working, the isolation was hard for the artist and he continued struggling even after he left for Auvers. Van Gogh chose this location for it was a small and quiet town with beautiful rural landscapes and radiant sunlight.
This unusual painting portrays a gloomy and rainy landscape with unnatural and exaggerated colors. Using a horizontal rectangular canvas, Van Gogh creates a panoramic view of the scene. The hills are mostly painted in shades of green, yellow, brown and ochre. The artist creates a horizontal stripe in the middle of the canvas in a dark row of blue, black and green houses, trees and vegetations. This drastic color change may be to differ the city from nature, or perhaps there's a more symbolic meaning. The sky also creates a dark strip on the canvas, with expressive diagonal brush strokes in blue and violet – complementing the colors of the fields.
Van Gogh paints diagonal heavy rain drops with long and continuous brushstrokes all throughout the canvas. This can be seen as an influence of Hiroshige’s woodcut Bridge in the Rain, which Van Gogh copied in 1887. The artist was deeply influenced by the Japanese prints and their vibrant colors, unusual compositions and dark contours – as were many of the Impressionists and Post-Impressionists.
The Dutch artist often portrayed the wheat fields with a deeper spiritual meaning and as a symbol of rebirth. This particular landscape, painted about three days before his death seems to be a prediction of his own suicide. If closely observed, there is a murderous group of flying crows practically centered in the canvas.
Van Gogh’s last days were dark and melancholic just as he depicts Landscape At Auvers In The Rain. He died after shooting himself in the chest. During his lifetime Van Gogh sold but one painting, other than those purchased brother, Theo—the only person who saw the true genius behind these paintings. His work began to be recognized some years after his death and today he is considered one of the greatest painters of all time.
