In his 1890 painting titled Landscape with Carriage and Train, Vincent van Gogh selected a high point of view for his vista of the fields adjacent to the village, with the road intersecting the field beds and the mountains in the distance. This sweeping and all-encompassing view recalls the approach van Gogh took to paint The Harvest, but the palette in Landscape with Carriage and Train in the Background is cool and muted, as opposed to the hot yellows Vincent used to express the restorative warmth of the Proven├žal sun.

Van Gogh painted several portraits of Dr. Gachet's daughter, Marguerite, while in Auvers-sur-Oise. Next, we'll look more closely at one of these.
