Title: Understanding Vincent van Gogh’s “Vegetable Gardens in Montmartre”

The “Vegetable Gardens in Montmartre” is a remarkable artwork by the renowned post-impressionist painter Vincent van Gogh. Painted during van Gogh’s Paris period, the piece reflects a profound shift in his artistic style that was to change the course of modern art.

Van Gogh painted the “Vegetable Gardens in Montmartre” in the year 1887, during the time he lived in Paris with his brother Theo. This was a formative period for the artist as he discovered the light, colour and technique used by the Impressionists and the avant-garde art movement.

Why is “Vegetable Gardens in Montmartre” special? One reason is that it marks a departure from the somber, darker palette of van Gogh’s earlier Dutch period. As he was introduced to the works of artists such as Monet, Pissarro, and Bernard in Paris, he began to experiment with brighter hues and looser brushwork, eventually leading him towards his distinctive post-impressionistic style.

The “Vegetable Gardens in Montmartre” presents a glimpse into the rural side of Montmartre, a village nestled within the cityscape of Paris, where vegetable gardens, windmills, and low houses dotted the landscape. Amidst this view, van Gogh captured a sense of serenity and harmony, which was a contrast to his later more emotionally intense pieces.

It’s also notable for its hint at the artist’s growing interest in Japanese art. The flat areas of color and the bird’s-eye perspective suggest the influence of Japanese prints, a feature more prominent in his later works like “The Flowering Plum Orchard (after Hiroshige)”.

In conclusion, “Vegetable Gardens in Montmartre” is a crucial turning point in van Gogh’s artistic journey, capturing the transformative Parisian years of his life and marking a shift towards his iconic style.
