The painting Old Road to Auvers by the artist Norbert Goeneutte is an impressive work that captures the viewer's attention from the very first moment. With an original size of 72 x 53 cm, this work is an example of the impressionist artistic style characterized by the use of loose brushstrokes and the representation of light and colour.

The composition of the painting is one of the most interesting features of the work. Goeneutte uses a perspective in which the road stretches towards the horizon, creating a sense of depth and movement. Furthermore, the presence of trees on both sides of the path and the human figure in the center of the painting create a visual balance that draws the eye of the viewer.

Color is another prominent aspect of the painting. Goeneutte uses a palette of warm, vibrant colors that reflect the sunlight on a summer day. The green and yellow tones of the trees and grass blend with the blue of the sky and the brown of the road, creating a visual harmony that conveys a sense of tranquility and serenity.

The story behind the painting is also fascinating. Goeneutte painted this work in 1890, while staying in Auvers-sur-Oise, a small town north of Paris that became a haven for many Impressionist artists. The human figure at the center of the painting could be Vincent van Gogh, who also lived and worked in Auvers-sur-Oise during the same year.

In summary, Norbert Goeneutte's painting Old Road to Auvers is an impressive work that combines artistic style, composition, color and an interesting story behind it. It is a work that deserves to be admired and appreciated for its beauty and meaning.
