About Olive Trees with Yellow Sky and Sun

Vincent van Gogh’s Olive Trees With Yellow Sky And Sun is a beautiful painting that was created in 1889. It is one of fifteen paintings of olive trees that he created during the same year. The painting depicts an olive grove in the foreground, with mountains in the background and a sky with clouds. The colors used are mainly orange and yellow, suggesting that it was painted during autumn months.

Van Gogh painted this artwork during his time at the asylum of St-Paul in St-Rémy in southern France where he created many profound works. Interestingly, it is said that this particular painting had special significance for van Gogh as a group of olive tree paintings from May 1889 depicted life and divinity while those from November 1889 represented his feelings about Christ in Gethsemane.

Like most of van Gogh’s works, Olive Trees With Yellow Sky And Sun showcases his signature style which includes bold brush strokes and vivid colors. This masterpiece has been an inspiration to many artists over the years and continues to be admired for its beauty today.
