"I see no way of describing the countryside to you as it should be done, because words fail me"

In the autumn of 1883 Van Gogh spent three months in the northern province of Drenthe. He lived at the inn of Hendrik Scholte in Nieuw-Amsterdam.  From his letters we learn that the landscape left a permanent impression on the artist and he made several paintings and sketches in this period.
