En plein air’ is a French phase meaning the work was made outside in the landscape ‘on site’. Van Gogh carried his easel into the open air to capture the bright light of Provence. The artist produces work outside to utilize the natural light and elements of the weather to represent the felling of being on that site at that specific moment in time.
