Vincent van Gogh – sunny buildings

Vincent van Gogh was one of those painters that didnt mind to paint the same thing over and over again. In fact he’s very known to have periods where he would be obsessed to paint the same place or topic over and over again. His most famous topic was probably his sun flowers. During his painting carreer he was consistent in his love for the sun and the moon. No wonder that he preferred sunny France over rainy Holland. Even this windmill that seems Dutch is in fact a French windmill called Moulin de Galette. He even painted that one several times from different angles.

These pictures of thatched cottages in the sunshine reminisence of the North show how Vincent liked to paint the same thing but make small difference in style and color while leaving the composition the same. He liked to paint rural areas in general.

He also painted urban paintings. Here he painted the outskirts of Paris, Monmartre, the entrance of a Belvedere in Paris and the view from a window of his apartment in Paris:

This painting of an Old Tower in the Fields shows a very different side of Vincent. It looks much smoother than the other painting and its primarily red instead of the yellow, blue or green that he used more often.
