The Bedroom is one of many iconic paintings produced by Vincent Van Gogh, as he paints his room in Arles. This work is considered one of the most ground-breaking paintings of the Post-Impressionism, for the painter creates an unusual perspective, completely ignoring any academic standard. The modern subject of the every-day life is common in van Gogh’s work, and he was able to create a very lonely, but still cozy environment.
To create this painting, the Post-impressionist executed studies and completed different versions to it, including three done in oil paint on canvas and other two drawings. Considered one of his best works, he writes about this piece in letters to his family. The scene shows simple figures, of furniture and objects, displayed in his room. The bed is the largest form, as its proportion is exaggerated to elude depth. He presents his paintings on the wall and, what is believed to be, framed Japanese prints that had a strong influence on his work. On the left side of the room, the artist paints what seems to be a mirror. The chair next to the bed is what draws more attention for its made-up proportion, represented in a way that it looks a lot smaller than the bed and table next to it. There are towels and other clothes hanging and a window in the far wall.
The colors he used are strong, and he contrasts complementary colors, as well as playing with hot and cold colors. The top part of the painting is cooler, with tonalities of blue and green, and in the bottom half, he used warmer browns and reds. He was able to make the colors pop when he inserts small portions of the complementary colors in some areas. For example, he uses tonalities of green to draw the floor-boards and contour the legs of the chairs, as well as inserting the same warm brown from the bottom part of the painting in the picture frames, contrasting to the walls. He also details the hung towel with a red stripe. The ambiance is a reflection of Vincent van Gogh’s modest and quiet life, as he lived alone and wasn’t taken seriously in the art community. The scene aspired a peacefulness that the artist wished to achieve with his new life in Arles.
