Museum Insider : ‘Wheat Fields After The Rain’ By Vincent Van Gogh (1890)

Wheat Fields after the Rain (The Plain of Auvers) – 1890

Wheat Fields is a series of dozens of paintings by Dutch Post-Impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh, borne out of his religious studies and sermons, connection to nature, appreciation of manual laborers and desire to provide a means of offering comfort to others. The wheat field works demonstrate his progression as an artist from the drab Wheat Sheaves made in 1885 in the Netherlands to the colorful and dramatic 1888–1890 paintings from ArlesSaint-Rémy and Auvers-sur-Oise in rural France.
