link to a letter to Theo from van Gogh describing this tree and comparing it to Sorrow and comparing it to a prostitute whom he cared for while he was in the Hague. Van Gogh had once expressed that he saw something like a soul in trees and compared a natural storm to the emotions of the human spirit
