The subject of this painting was the new and inspiring surroundings in which van Gogh would be working. A survey of the drawings and paintings he made in Auvers reveals an almost unbelievable productivity even allowing for some unevenness in quality. The work was done at a dazzling tempo.
Characteristic of the work of the Auvers period are mosaic-like brushstrokes, forceful brushwork, bright colors such as the lively, vivid green blue and bright red which give a sense of cheerfulness.
