Ravine 1889 Vincent Van Gogh, Dutch, 1853–1890
73 x 91.7 cm (28 3/4 x 36 1/8 in.)
Oil on canvas
Van Gogh worked on this oil painting while at a asylum in the southern French town of Saint-Rémy.
This was the mountain ravine view near the asylum.
Whats interesting about this painting is there is another painting under the Ravine. It is speculated that Van Gogh had run out of canvas while waiting on a supply from his brother who was supplying his painting materials at the time. Van Goghs's use of shape, color, and brush strokes are a good example of Impressionism.
