In Wheat Field With a Lark Vincent Van Gogh abandoned his earlier darker palette, replacing it with light colours and directional brushstrokes to depict the airiness of a wheat field swaying in a summer’s breeze. In the last years of his life, he painted several landscapes featuring wheat fields, all of which evoke a range of emotions. In a letter to his brother he explained his inspiration: ‘I am almost certain that these canvases illustrate what I cannot express in words, that is, how healthy and reassuring I find the countryside.’ His love for the countryside can be seen in the quick and lyrical execution of each stroke that makes every flower and wheat sheaf come alive. While he was not widely accepted in his lifetime, Van Gogh is now one of the most renowned artists in the world and his incredible paintings will be for ever admired.
