In the year of 1889, Vincent Van Gogh paints a landscape called Avenue with Flowering Chestnut Trees. This work is very in tune with the Impressionism, as the painter works en plein air. In other words, Van Gogh paints outside as he wishes to portray the optical effect the natural light has on the scene with loose and expressive brushstrokes.
The Post-impressionist artist had an individual and unique interpretation of life and had written in letters about how he is baffled by the fact that no one else sees the world the way he does. He was inspired by Realist and Impressionist painters, as well as used a decorative style in this painting, influenced by artists he looked up to like Paul Gauguin and Claude Monet. This decorative approach can be seen in the details of Avenue with Flowering Chestnut Trees. The artist himself finds this work to be one of his best efforts and compares it to Starry Night Over the Rhone, The Green Vineyard, The Harvest, among others.
This masterpiece is a landscape of a park filled with trees and flowers. It's a casual scene portraying families and people relaxing in the shade — seen as a modern, every-day subject. The composition suggests a vanishing point, as the artist uses his version of a painted perspective. The central figures seem to be a family: a woman in a long dark dress with a red sun umbrella and holding a little girl's hand. On her other side, stands a second little girl, and both are wearing sun hats. Other figures are sketched out sitting on green benches.
The road reflects yellow and gold, as well as specks of light blue. The trees are mostly tonalities of green and brown, but Van Gogh willingly paints colorful flowers of orange, blue and yellow — creating a beautiful complementary contrast with the trees as well as the dark blue sky. The painter plays with the bright light on top of the trees and the road, contrasting with the vast darkness of the vegetation.
He often made smaller replicas of his paintings to send as gifts to members of his family, especially his sister and mother. Sadly, he was never able to send them a version of Avenue with Flowering Chestnut Trees as he passed away during the same year.
