Flower Beds in Holland was painted by Vincent van Gogh in Sept. 1883. 
Van Gogh moved to The Hague in Sept. 1882 and was introduced to painting in oil and watercolor by his cousin, Anton Mauve, who also lent van Gogh money to get his own studio.
Van Gogh and Mauve’s relationship ended over the cousin’s disapproval of van Gogh’s relationship with Clasina “Sien” Maria Hoornik, a prostitute with a 5-year-old girl who was pregnant when van Gogh met her.  Sien posed for van Gogh and he provided Sien and her daughter a place to live and food to eat. Van Gogh thought about marrying her, but was under pressure from his father to end the relationship. In June 1882, van Gogh was hospitalized for gonorrhea and during that time, Sien gave birth to a baby boy. Van Gogh moved in with Sien and her two children and painted in a studio next door. 
Despite family pressures, van Gogh was happy and productive, improving his painting technique. The raked perspective and tonal contrast of Flower Beds in Holland would continue throughout van Gogh’s painting.
Van Gogh left Sien shortly after this picture was completed, and Sien worked as a seamstress for a while and possibly returned to prostitution. She drowned herself in the river at the age of 54, 14 years after van Gogh’s suicide.

there is literally no difference between academic scholars discussing their interpretations of a text and a bunch of people yelling YOUR HEADCANON IS WRONG at each other

As a Masters student I can vouch for this.

The difference is citations.

Good, the skeleton needs to know that I am the alpha and I am in control.
