About Tree With Ivy In The Asylum Garden

Vincent Van Gogh’s “Tree with Ivy in the Asylum Garden” is a beautiful representation of nature, painted by the artist in 1889. The artwork depicts a view of several trees with numerous shades of yellow, green, brown, and blue painted thickly on canvas. The tops of the trees and foreground are emphasized with pencil work that adds depth to the painting.

Van Gogh chose an authentic viewpoint next to the wall of his hospital room to create this splendid artwork. This allowed him to capture the beauty of nature while still being confined within hospital walls due to his mental illness. The painting features a diagonal path with a stone bench that offers viewers an idea of how Van Gogh had fashioned it from his own vision.

The artwork demonstrates Van Gogh’s unique artistic style through impasto technique and delicate application methods combined with various mediums like color pencils, chalks, reed pens, and brown ink on Ingres paper. The combination creates textures that make it reflect realistic views between tree trunks without losing any naturalism or details for which Van Gogh has become renowned.

Overall, Tree With Ivy In The Asylum Garden is an incredible artwork that showcases Van Gogh’s ability to skillfully paint nature. It paints different shades beautifully depicting life at a critical moment in Vincent’s life before he passed on in 1890 at just thirty-seven years old but already one of history’s most celebrated artists for his legendary works filled with emotions that still resonate today!
