1881-83
(36 paintings)


Vincent van Gogh's earliest paintings offer some interesting insights into his ongoing development as an artist. Many of the paintings in the table below include subjects that Van Gogh would use throughout his career (farmhouses or a sower, for example). Stylistically some of the works seem flat and the colours aren't always used to their best effect, but these paintings nevertheless reflect an emerging genius.

Note: The paintings are sorted by month and then alphabetically within each month. More accurate dating is generally too difficult. As a rule, however, the JH (Jan Hulsker) numbers do follow a more precise chronological sequence.
