A Road in St Remy 1889 by Van Gogh
Painted in 1889 when van Gogh experienced a nervous breakdown this painting captures the hot dusry road of summer and the lone figuer of the woman is symbolic perhaps of Van Gogh's own isolation.
He would wonder the local road at St Remy and the urge to paint would be upon him.
There is much energy here as can be seen from the brush strokes depicting the dry earth and bushes by the roadside
