Van Gogh arrived in Arles, a small town in Southern France in February 1888. With the financial help from his brother Theo, Van Gogh moved into the famous Yellow House in September and his bedroom on second floor overlooks Place Lamartine, a small public park. This park sparks many great works of the artist. This drawing is one of the practices during that time.
Using his repetitive brushstrokes and thick impasto, the garden's vitality is conveyed to the viewers. His style - full of movement with brushstrokes, dots and swirls â seems to represent the inner fury that gripped him.
