Farms near Auvers
Vincent van Gogh

Van Gogh loved the ‘mossy thatched roofs’ which he saw near his last home at Auvers, close to Paris. A row of dilapidated farm buildings dominates this picture, made a month before the artist’s death.

Their shapes are mimicked by the fields and hills behind. The hasty brushwork and blank sky suggest that the painting is unfinished.
