Notes

Summary:
Inspired by the little grey church in Auvers-sur-Oise, he immortalised it in rapturous colour, describing his canvas in a letter to his brother, Theo : "The building appears almost dark purple against a deep blue sky of pure cobalt, and the stained glass windows are ultramarine smudges. The roof is violet, touched with orange, and in front there's a grassy bank covered in flowers, surrounded by sandy soil bathed pink with sunlight."
