Vincent van Gogh’s fascination for olive trees

We have chosen this painting, which is in a private collection, of large, lush olive trees for their vibrant green color evocative of the trees in summer.
This close-up gives the viewer the impression of walking into an olive grove and finding solace and peacefulness in nature. Its composition invites the viewer to enter.
Traditionally olive trees are planted 6 to 8 meters apart in order to prosper, in a square design, a rectangle or in staggered rows.
Olive trees need as much sunshine as possible.
 Did you know that Van Gogh painted more than 18 scenes of olive trees?
