Notes

Summary:
When van Gogh began experiencing prolonged seizures in 1889, he committed himself to an asylum in Saint-Remy. There he sometimes painted the fields and landscape visible through his window. Anxious about the recurrence of his illness, he made even bolder expressions of his feelings of nature. In Poplars at Saint-Remy, each brushstroke is like a broad, thick mosaic tile fitted into place. The trees tilting to the right seem to be walking up the hill with an instability that animates the entire composition.
