Fishing in the Spring, the Pont de Clichy (Asnieres) by Vincent van Gogh

Vincent van Gogh completed Fishing in the Spring, the Pont de Clichy (Asnières) in 1887. The painting was created during regular trips to the Paris suburb of Asnières with fellow painters Paul Signac and Emile Bernard.

 Van Gogh and his friends set up their easels in the park and along the riverbanks to catch the natural light. Van Gogh often built his composition up with color, as seen here.
