Francis Bacon

1957
Oil on canvas

The so-titled study of a landscape after the painter Vincent Van Gogh consists of a foreground, the row of trees behind it and finally the sky. Path and fields become one large area composed of green and yellow brushstrokes. The model was the (black and white) photo reproduction of Van Gogh's "The Painter on the Road to Tarascon" (1888), which burned down in the museum in Magdeburg during the Second World War. Bacon painted eight versions of the now lost picture which he had never seen in the original.
