These new works are inspired by Van Gogh's life and mental health issues.

 

Van Gogh spent his childhood in the countryside. From his home village Zundert he made long walks along fields and through forests. He wrote that if he had no love for nature and his work he would be unhappy.

 

After his notorious breakdown in Arles, Van Gogh had himself institutionalized in the Saint-Paul Psychiatric Institution in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence. He was allowed to paint in the garden and in the surroundings. During his stay Van Gogh drew and painted his memories of his native region. He increasingly thought of a return to 'the north'.

 

Van Gogh eventually moved northward in May 1890, but he never saw the Dutch countryside again. His final destination was Auvers-sur-Oise.
