Share This With Friends

A Wheatfield with Cypresses is one of the three wheat field oil paintings series by Vincent van Gohn, executed at the Saint-Paul-de-Mausolemental asylum at Saint-Rémy near Arles, France, where he was voluntarily a patient from May 1889 to May 1890. Van Gogh suffered a bout of severe mental illness in late July and early August, but was able to resume painting in late August and early September 1889. The painting depicts golden fields of ripe wheat, a dark fastigiate Provençal cypress towering like a green obelisk to the right and lighter green olive trees in the middle distance, with hills and mountains visible behind, and white clouds swirling in an azure sky above. The works were inspired by the view from the window at the asylum towards the Alpilles mountains.
