Vincent Van Gogh : Olive trees

After the Sunflowers and the cypresses, the olive trees would become Vincent’s new subject of study and take much of his time.
“it’s silver, sometimes bluer, sometimes greener, sunburnt, whitening in a yellow background, pink, purplish…But really difficult, really difficult. But it suits me and I find it attractive to work right in gold or silver.”
He also wanted to turn it into “a personal touch, like the sunflowers for the yellows”.
