Vincent Van Gogh Undergrowth
During the first stage of his voluntary committal Van Gogh was not allowed to leave the asylum, as the risk of a new lapse into insanity was too great. Van Gogh did not regard this as a problem, as long as he was allowed to paint. He drew his inspiration from his immediate surroundings: 'Since I have been here, the neglected garden with large pines beneath which long and poorly kept grass grows, mingled with all kinds of periwinkle, has given me sufficient work'. Van Gogh made several paintings of the asylum's unkempt, ivy-covered garden. In this work he focused his attention on the light falling through the foliage on the overgrown tree trunks and the undergrowth. The effect of light and shadow produced an almost abstract pattern of undulating brushstrokes covering the entire painting. Van Gogh took the low viewpoint, also known as frog perspective, from Japanese prints.
