Starry Night Over the Rhone

Starry Night Over the Rhone (September 1888) is one of Vincent van Gogh's paintings of Arles at night; it was painted at a spot on the river bank that was only a minute or two's walk from the Yellow House on the Place Lamartine which Van Gogh was renting at the time. The night sky and the effects of light at night provided the subject for some of his more famous paintings, including Cafe Terrace at Night (painted earlier the same month) and the later canvas from Saint-Rémy, The Starry Night.  - Wikipedia -

Wheat Field Under Clouded Skies

Vincent van Gogh painted dozens of Wheat Fields (series of paintings), borne out of his religious studies and sermons, connection to nature, appreciation of manual laborers and desire to provide a means of offering comfort to others. The wheat field works demonstrate his progression as an artist from the drab Wheat Sheaves made in 1885 in the Netherlands to the colorful, dramatic paintings from Arles, Saint-Rémy and Auvers-sur-Oise of rural France.

In van Gogh's Wheatfields Under Thunderclouds, also called Wheat Fields Under Clouded Sky, landscape he depicts the loneliness of the countryside and the degree to which it was "healthy and heartening."  - Wikipedia -

View of Paris from Montmartre

The Montmartre paintings are a group of works that Vincent van Gogh made in 1886 and 1887 of the Paris district of Montmartre while living there with his brother Theo. Rather than capture urban settings in Paris, Van Gogh preferred pastoral scenes, such as Montmartre and Asnières in the northwest suburbs. Of the two years in Paris, the work from 1886 often has the dark, somber tones of his early works from Holland and Brussels. By the spring of 1887 Van Gogh embraced use of color and light and created his own brushstroke techniques based upon Impressionism and Pointillism. The works in the series provide examples of his work during that period of time and the progression he made as an artist.

Roofs in Paris (F231) was made by Van Gogh in 1886, his first year in Paris. Although acquainted with Impressionism, he had not yet begun to integrate color and light into his work. This painting consists of dull brown and gray. Here Van Gogh seemed most interested in the variations of colors found in the many houses within his view.  - Wikipedia -

Pollard Willow

Pollard willow was executed in The Hague in July 1882, a period in which Van Gogh produced –for the first time− a number of large, fully-fledged watercolours. Of all of them, this was the one with which he was most satisfied as he described in one of his letters. The work displays a path alongside a stretch of water, with a pollard willow standing beside it. Clearly visible in the background are the buildings of the depot at Rijnspoor railway station. Van Gogh stumbled on this spot on one of his many journeys in the surroundings of his house on Schenkstraat, in The Hague. He describes the motif at length in two letters, absorbed in the atmosphere of the scene that he wished to evoke. In a letter to Theo, he wrote: ‘A sombre landscape — that dead tree beside a stagnant pond covered in duckweed, in the distance a Rijnspoor depot where railway lines cross, smoke-blackened buildings — also green meadows, a cinder road and a sky in which the clouds are racing, grey with an occasional gleaming white edge, and a depth of blue where the clouds tear apart for a moment.’  - Vincent van Gogh to Theo van Gogh, 31 July 1882 -

The Stone Bridge

This is the only time that Rembrandt painted such a typically Dutch landscape. A striking element is the contrast between the dark clouds and the bright rays of sunlight glancing off the bridge and the trees. Rembrandt emphasized this effect by giving the darker portions of the composition only a thin layer of paint, while the lighter sections are thickly painted.
