Analysis of Memory of the Garden at Etten
The memory of the Garden at Etten (Ladies of Arles) was painted by Vincent van Gogh in 1888 as a decoration for his bedroom in the house he shared with fellow artist Paul Gauguin in Arles.
This work shows the influence of Gauguin on van Gogh: the painting of peasant women in a non-naturalistic space or rather a space of uncertain perspective.
Van Gogh retains his fascination with luminous colors and fine details like the dotted shawls and dresses of the women that seem to absorb the brilliant light of the south of France.
