Analysis of Lane with Poplars

Vincent van Gogh painted Lane with Poplars in 1885 and he depicts a scene near Nuenen in the Netherlands where he lived from 1883 to 1885. The three people depicted on the lane are lacking in detailed facial features and are dwarfed by the representation of the trees which are painted in quick and sweeping gestures suggesting an autumnal windiness.

The townscape with its church tower is in the background but the viewer’s attention is primarily drawn to the airiness of the foliage and its colors of gold and red.
