Although restless beyond measure, with few straight lines, this landscape is one of the most classic in conception among Van Gogh's works. It is build up in great bands that traverse the entire space. The tall dark cypress trees at one side offer a powerful contrast to the prevailing horizontals, which they resemble in form. The oppositions of warm and cool, the proportioning of parts, the relative height of sky and earth on the two sides, the horizontal intervals which we can measure on the silhouette of the distant mountain, twice broken by trees - all these are perfectly legible and well balanced.
