First you see The Bedroom of van Gogh
, made in October 1888. The second painting Les Alyscamps, is made by Gauguin
The most striking aspects of this work are the bright patches of contrasting color, the thickly applied paint and the odd perspective. The rear wall appears strangely angled. This is not a mistake: this corner of the Yellow House was, in fact, slightly skewed. The simple interior and bright colors were meant to convey notions of rest and sleep, both literally and figuratively.
What you see in The Bedroom:
bright patches of contrasting color (as thick as in his Nuenen period),
no shadows in complementary colors,
and the use of a lot of colors.
Impression: light and bright and colorful
Gauguin made his shadow still by using painters grey and not by using complementary colors!
What do you like most? I like both.
