Vincent Van Gogh painted Landscape With Carriage And Train In The Background in 1890, after moving to Auvers-sur-Oise. He spent about a year in an asylum being treated, as he admitted himself after having a break-down and mutilating his own ear. This happened after he and Paul Gauguin had an argument that ended their partnership. It was Van Gogh’s desire to have a successful art studio in southern France, along with Gauguin as a mentor. He went so far as to dedicate himself to painting a series of sunflowers to decorate the walls of the Yellow House, and to impress the Gauguin so he would agree to join the studio.
The painting Landscape With Carriage And Train In The Background was concluded shortly before his death. He developed a technique of working very fast and produced many works during this period. Van Gogh writes to his sister about this work, stating he wished to capture the quickness of the modern world in this painting. He developed a fondness for painting views from above, like the perspective portrayed in this painting. This enabled him to focus more on the fields and the elements of the painting, than the sky.
Compositionally, Van Gogh cuts the painting in half with a horizontal white road that reaches both edges of the canvas. On this road, there is a white horse and a brown carriage with red wheels positioned slightly to the left of the canvas. The fields in the forefront are mainly green, but some areas have tones of orange, purple and red – he writes explaining to his sister saying they are fields of potatoes, peas, and alfalfa. A peasant is seen to the left of the canvas working on the field, almost blending with it.The top part of the canvas depicts more fields, this time mostly green.
Van Gogh is able to portray the perspective and give a sense of the direction of the plantations with his marked brush strokes. Large yellow houses with red roof-tops and blue windows are painted on the far right of the canvas. The train in the far background is a symbol for modern times and is painted in darker shades of blue and black. The smoke coming from the train is painted with fast and expressive brush strokes of white and blue.
