In 1886, because of lack of money, Vincent Van Gogh moved in with his brother Theo in Paris, France. This change of city meant a significant period of the artist's career, as he now had a direct contact with the Impressionist art being made in the birth city of modern painting. Theo greatly encouraged his brother to free his use of color, and during this period a significant change is being taken place.
Van Gogh painted Still Life With Apples Pears Lemons And Grapes in 1887, and it translates the path the artist was taking in his work. Art critics and historians study the Post-Impressionist's paintings and drawings along with the many letters he wrote to friends and family about his process, as well as his intentions and goals within the works being produced. Since the primary person the painter would write to about this way his brother Theo, this period lacks a bit of information, as they lived together — therefore did not need to write letters.
The painting Still Life With Apples Pears Lemons And Grapes is a daring work in oil paint. The artist found it necessary to change his dark color palette, influenced by the Dutch artists that came before him and starts working with a more colorful pallet. Later in life, Van Gogh found flowers to be the perfect theme for him to study color, but at the beginning of his career, he experiments with still life — painting Still Life with Grapes, Pears, and Lemons as well.
As a known master of color, Vincent Van Gogh was able to combine beautiful complementary colors in this simple theme. The main combination of the work is the purple grapes with the yellow limes. He also mixes yellow-green grapes and leaves in the composition. There are red apples with yellow highlights, along with a single green and ochre pear also in the painting. The composition of the painting draws considerable attention, as the fruit seems to be portrayed from the front, but the background suggests a view from the top, as the lilac, purple, pink and blue tonalities of the tablecloth take up the whole canvas. The rapid brush strokes of the background follow a particular flow as if it radiated from the central figures.
