“Wheatfield Under a Cloudy Sky” by Vincent Van Gogh (1853 – 1890) presents an overview of his life’s journey, in which the commotion of daily life is in front, and the boundless field stretches off into the distance. Van Gogh, who had been sick for a long time, usually felt healthy and reassured when out in the countryside, so painting an outdoor scene such as this would have produced a cleansing catharsis giving him some much needed serenity and comfort. The artist’s final painting, this unusual and elongated canvas in which he expresses sadness and extreme loneliness, is both beautiful and melancholy.
Vincent Van Gogh (1853 – 1890) was a Dutch post-Impressionist Master whose innovative artwork powerfully influenced modern Expressionism, Fauvism, and early abstraction. Astoundingly prolific, Van Gogh produced all of his work during a 10-year period, at one point, creating 150 paintings and drawings within one year. Painting outdoors, Van Gogh uniquely captured the nighttime nuances of light and shadow, and was also renowned for his paintings of sunflowers and irises. Tormented by mental illness for most of his life, Van Gogh created many of his masterpieces while he was institutionalized. Although Van Gogh only sold one painting during his lifetime, he is now regarded as one of the most profoundly influential artists of the 19th century.
