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
