'Wheatfield with Crows', (detail) 1890. In Auvers, Van Gogh painted a large number of landscapes with wheatfields, all on unusual, elongated canvases (50 x 100 cm). He wrote to Theo about two of these works: They depict vast, distended wheatfields under angry skies, and I deliberately tried to express sadness and extreme loneliness in them. But these pictures also had a positive side: I am almost certain that these canvases illustrate what I cannot express in words, that is, how healthy and reassuring I find the countryside. Painted in the last weeks of his life. From the collection of the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, Netherlands.
