In 1886, Vincent Van Gogh painted The Fourteenth Of July Celebration in Paris. He moved to the capital of France during this same year and was overwhelmed by the culture and art of the city. The artist left his Dutch homeland and, along with it, the classic characteristics of his paintings. The modern painter no longer felt the need to portray images as they were but joined what he saw with what he felt. The gray and black color pallets were substituted by vibrant colors. The soft and realistic brush strokes were becoming thicker and more expressive.
The Fourteenth Of July Celebration in Paris portrays a holiday that celebrates the Storming of the Bastille, a major event for the people that happened in 1789 during the French Revolution. Van Gogh was deeply inspired by the themes of Realism, the art movement that propelled the Revolution – especially the painter Jean-François Millet. This particular work translates the painter's joy in living in Paris.
During his two-year stay in the city, he stayed at his brother Theo’s house because he had financial problems. Today, most of what we know about Van Gogh’s work and his view of it comes from studying his letters to friends and family, but mainly to Theo. Since they were living together and had no need to write to each other, there is little information about the works he produced in Paris. But even without the artist’s feedback on what he thought about his work, it is visible on how this period was crucial to his career as an artist.
Every painting and drawing of this time show how Van Gogh was letting go of the “traditional” way of painting and becoming more bold and unique. This painting highlights the colors of French flag – red, white, and blue – as the Post-Impressionist used them throughout almost the whole canvas representing fireworks with short strokes of thick paint. The French flag pops out to the eyes, as it blows in the wind. Families are portrayed watching the spectacle, painted in a simple and fast manner. Van Gogh was a master of color, and this shows even in his early Paris paintings, and this one is not an exception. He uses areas of ochre, purple and green to create complementary combinations with the colors of France.
