Vincent van Gogh - Green Wheat Field

Van Gogh produced the painting Green Wheat Field during his stay in Saint-Paul de Mausole sanatorium near Saint-Rémy in June 1889. The painting depicts a field of wheat turning yellow with the Alpilles Mountains in the far back, a small house, and a dark tall cypress tree which dominates the painting composition. Unlike the artist’s other late paintings, this one gives a balanced and peaceful impression. Nonetheless, van Gogh’s impasto and relief style has remained.
