The Rooftops, View from the Atelier The Hague was one of the latest creations by Vincent Van Gogh, in 1882. From what the modern artists believe, Vincent had a unique way of communicating with the audience, and this time, he did it using a picture full of colours.

Van Gogh, though an ancient artist, believed that learning is a process. Therefore, he learned a lot from old masters, especially when it comes to combining colours to create a picture that would attract the world and attract the highest sales.


The Rooftops, View from the Atelier The Hague is not an ordinary painting, though it might look so. First, there is a tall building with a green field in the background. Far beyond, there is a slightly cloudy blue sky. All this is one picture that is made from a combination of colours. The drawing does not have any animate figure, which is a symbol of loneliness. However, the place looks calm and peaceful, a place that someone could call home. But the most important thing is the colour of the field and the sky.

The greenfield indicates that the place has been receiving adequate rainfall. This is also depicted by the fact that the sky is cloudy. It is not accurate to state that this a drawing that Vincent decided to sit down and create. As an observer, one must believe that there were many other landscapes that Van Gogh could have chosen to draw. But why this one?

Rooftops, View from the Atelier The Hague was created by the one ancient artist who had a lot going on in his head. Though he was good and made quite some money from the paintings, we can see someone looking for answers from the empty building. The solutions that are hidden in a world that seem so perfect, though it is not.

The trees, the grass, the buildings, all look perfect? But what about the people who live there. Van Gogh used his power to match colours once again to pass a strong message that there is an emptiness in a place that might seem full of life. Of all the paintings done by Vincent Van Gogh, the Rooftops, View from the Atelier The Hague has many details. It contains many colours and covers a wide area. There is no doubt it took a lot of time and effort to complete.
