Vincent Van Gogh Wheatfield Under Thunderclouds
In Auvers Vincent painted a number of landscapes with wheatfields in an unusual, elongated format (50 x 100 cm). He wrote about these canvases in a letter to his brother Theo; 'They are enormous sweeping wheatfields beneath stormy skies and I have intentionally tried to express sadness, extreme loneliness in them'. The simple composition of Wheatfield under thunderclouds, a division into two horizontal planes, emphasizes the boundless quality of the open fields. There is no tree, bird or figure to interrupt the horzontal character of the landscape. However, the painter claimed that these works also contained a positive meaning; 'I am almost sure that in these canvases I have articulated what I cannot express in words, namely how healthy and heartening I find the countryside'. Van Gogh intended to take these elongated canvases to Paris in the near future, but this was not to be.
