The Olive Trees (aka The Alpilles with Olive Trees in the Foreground )1889 by Vincent van Gogh
June 1889. Of this painting "Van Gogh wrote his brother Theo: 'I did a landscape with olive trees and also a new study of a starry sky,' calling this painting the daylight complement to the nocturnal, The Starry Night. His intention was to go beyond 'the photographic and silly perfection of some painters' to an intensity born of color and linear rhythms.
