OIL PAINTING: The Bedroom, 1889
Here, Van Gogh has depicted his bedroom in the Yellow House, furnished with simple pine furniture and his own paintings. Over the bed hang Van Gogh's portraits of the poet Eugene Boch and the soldier Paul-Eugene Milliet.
The most striking aspects of " Bedroom" are the bright patches of contrasting color, the thickly applied paint and the odd perspective. The rear wall appears strangely angled. This is not a mistake: this corner of the Yellow House was, in fact, slightly skewed.
