Vincent van Gogh created at least 18 paintings of olive trees during a year-long voluntary stay at an asylum in Saint-Remy-de-Provence. Van Gogh found respite and relief in interaction with nature. When the series of olive tree paintings was made, he was subject to illness and emotional turmoil, yet the paintings are considered to be among his finest works. This painting is based on “Olive Trees with Yellow Sky and Sun” painted in the fall of 1889.
