Description

"Coin de jardin avec papillons" traslate to "Grass and Butterflies" is a painting by Vincent van Gogh created in 1887. It depicts a corner of a garden with butterflies flying among the foliage. This artwork marks a crucial turning point in the artist's career as he moves away from traditional painting conventions and embraces a more spontaneous and luminous style. Van Gogh experiments with color theories promoted by artists like Seurat but adapts them to his personal style, using fluid brushstrokes and intense fervor. The painting reflects Van Gogh's encounter with the Impressionists in Asnières and foreshadows his future garden paintings. "Coin de jardin avec papillons" represents the fragility of Van Gogh's life and his expressionistic approach to painting.
