Vincent van Gogh Wheatfield with Crows Oil Painting

Wheatfield with Crows is a painting that was completed by Vincent van Gogh in July of 1890. It has been hailed as one of his greatest works by a number of distinguished reviewers.

It is widely believed that this was the last painting that van Gogh ever created. Since there are no definitive historical documents, art historians are unable to agree on which of van Gogh’s paintings was the artist’s final completed work. The evidence found in his writings suggests that Wheatfield with Crows was finished around the 10th of July. This would place it before the completion of paintings such as Auvers Town Hall on the 14th of July 1890 and Daubigny’s Garden. In addition to this, Jan Hulsker has written that a painting titled Field with Stacks of Wheat must be a later work because it depicts harvested wheat.

Wheatfield with Crows, which can be found in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, was painted by van Gogh in July 1890, during the final weeks of his life. Many people have asserted that it was his final painting, although it’s also likely that Tree Roots or Daubigny’s Garden, both of which were stated before, was his last work.

The painting titled “Wheat Field with Crows,” which was created on a canvas that is twice as square as it is tall, features a dramatic gloomy sky that is full of crows flying over a wheat field. The presence of a center trail that goes nowhere and the fact that it is unclear which direction the crows are flying in both contribute to an increased feeling of loneliness.

The canvas is two-thirds taken up by the wheat field that has been swept by the wind. One of van Gogh’s favorite authors, Jules Michelet, wrote the following about crows: “They take an interest in everything and pay attention to everything around them. The ancients, who lived far more completely than we do in and with nature, discovered that it was not a small advantage to follow the advice of such a sensible and intelligent bird. This was true in a hundred different things where human experience as yet provides no light on the subject.”

Kathleen Erickson believes that the painting conveys both sadness and a sense that the subject’s life is drawing to a close. Van Gogh uses the crows as a symbol of death and rebirth, or the concept of resurrection, throughout his work. Erickson claims that the road, which is depicted in contrasting colors of red and green, is a metaphor for a sermon that he delivered that was based on John Bunyan’s The Pilgrim’s Progress. In the sermon, the pilgrim laments the fact that the road is so long but rejoices because the Eternal City is waiting for him at the end of the journey.

This painting, along with another by Van Gogh called Wheatfield under Clouded Sky, can be found in the collection of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.

Wheatfield with Crows was among the 20 paintings by Van Gogh that were stolen in 1991 before being found again shortly thereafter. The robbers “severely damaged” the painting while they were in the process of committing the theft.
