This drawing was created while Van Gogh was staying at Arles, where Van Gogh stayed for a couple of years and made many landscape drawings.
This Newly Mowed Lawn with Weeping Tree is one of them and was drawn using pencil, reed pen and brown ink on wove paper.
In the execution of these drawings the handling of the pen is careful, even, in the case of The sower, elegant. There is a sense of joy in the way in which the field, the corn and the sky have been drawn, while, for a peasant, the sower is working in an unusually graceful way.
