The painting "Village Street and Steps in Auvers with Figures" by Vincent Van Gogh is a masterpiece of post-impressionist impressionism. This work was created in 1890, shortly before the artist's death, and represents a street in the small town of Auvers-sur-Oise, in France.

Van Gogh's artistic style is unmistakable in this work, with its thick brushwork and bold use of colour. The composition of the painting is interesting, with the street stretching towards the background and the figures moving towards the viewer. The perspective is slightly distorted, which creates a sense of movement and dynamism in the work.

Color is one of the highlights of this painting. Van Gogh uses a bold and vibrant palette, with bright shades of yellow, orange and green. The colors mix and overlap, creating a sensation of light and movement in the work.

The story behind this painting is fascinating. Van Gogh moved to Auvers-sur-Oise in May 1890, seeking a calmer and healthier environment for his mental health. During his time in the city, he painted several works, including this painting. Unfortunately, Van Gogh died just two months after his arrival in Auvers-sur-Oise, making this work one of the last he created.

There are some lesser known aspects of this painting that are also interesting. For example, the figures in the street are believed to be Van Gogh himself and his friend, the artist Paul Gachet. Also, the house in the background of the painting is the same house where Van Gogh lived during his time in Auvers-sur-Oise.
