Van Gogh painted the foreground of this view of Montmartre with a fine brush, while the sky in the background he produced with broad brushstrokes. In Paris, Van Gogh frequently painted the picturesque windmills on the hill of Montmartre. In his day, Montmartre was still a partly rural area with allotment gardens and farms.
