Studies of Peasants

Van Gogh prepared himself carefully for this first large figure painting during the winter of 1884-85. He painted roughly 40 studies of peasant heads, and made drawings of various parts of the composition. He chose models who conformed to his view of peasants, with “coarse, flat faces, low foreheads and thick lips, not sharp but full.” He even exaggerated their rough features.
