Cypresses was painted in late June 1889, shortly after Van Gogh began his yearlong stay at the asylum in Saint-RÂ© my. The subject, which he found “beautiful as regards lines and proportions, like an Egyptian obelisk,” both captivated and challenged the artist: “ItÂ© ï¿½s the dark patch in a sun-drenched landscape, but itÂ© ï¿½s one of the most interesting dark notes, the most difficult to hit off exactly that I can imagine.” One of two close-up views of the “very tall and massive” trees in a vertical format (the other is in the KrÂ© ller-MÂ© ller Museum, Otterlo), Cypresses was shown in the 1890 Salon des IndÂ© pendants.
