Vincent Van Gogh paints Lane With Poplars in 1884, and it is one of his earlier works. The artist was still living in his hometown, Brabant, southern Netherlands. At this time, he had still not let go of the classic Dutch color pallet of the XVII century and its dark tonalities and was greatly influenced by Rembrandt and his nighttime landscapes. He also paints Avenue of Poplars at Sunset during the same year, following the same theme – mournful characters in a dark and gloomy landscape with poplar trees.
Although Van Gogh painted this scene more than once, Lane With Poplars stands out from his earlier works for it shows how he began to loosen his brush strokes and color pallet. The painting shows a landscape with three people walking on a road with poplar trees and a church in the far background. The painter had recently given up on his wishes to dedicate his life to religion, and this shows in his work. Two women in dark green and black walk towards the left of the painting and a man walks on the opposite side, all three looking down. The size of the trees makes these small figures look even tinier.
The artist uses a diagonal line to portray a perspective on the road, as he does in many works throughout his career. The poplar trees follow both sides of the road and take up most of the canvas. The sky is reminiscent of the classic Dutch painters, in shades of dark gray, but already shows traces of the modern artist’s uniqueness with specks of light and dark blue in between the trees. The overall color palette isn’t as vibrant, giving the painting a melancholic atmosphere. The leaves on the trees have mostly the same colors as the ground; green, brown, ochre and orange – but features a bit of red as well. These same colors are repeated in the background, but in a darker tone.
Van Gogh developed a greater interest in Impressionism later in his career after he moved to Paris, but he already paints en plein air – meaning he paints outside. During the last year of his life and the peak of his career, the Post-Impressionist does another painting with the same trees in Two Poplars on a Road Through the Hills with a remarkable difference in style.
