No. 2: Van Gogh and the Landscape

Marchutz Fellow

In the past few weeks, we've been immersed in painting the landscape of nearby Beaurecueil. For those of us who were struggling to find unity in the all those trees and grasses and mountains, our trip to Arles and Saint Rémy, where Van Gogh spent his last and most productive years, was rich with inspiration, featuring visits to famous motifs and discussions before some of his most powerful paintings.

The artist's reflections to his brother Theo, read by John Gasparach, underscores this montage of students in the landscape.
