In 1889, Vincent Van Gogh painted the landscape Green Wheat Field With Cypress, while in Saint-Rémy. The Post-Impressionist had voluntarily admitted himself after having a bad break down where he mutilated his own ear. His health was already in poor condition, but he had hopes for recovery. He wished to work alongside Paul Gauguin in the Studio of the South, but they ended up having an awful argument, which led to the incident. While in Saint-Rémy, Van Gogh never wished to stop working. When he recovered his health enough, he gained permission to roam the outskirts of the asylum to paint the landscape.
Influenced by the French Impressionists, the artist worked en plein air – meaning he chose to work outside to capture the optical effect the natural light has on figures and landscapes. Van Gogh was also interested in the Pointillists studies on color and masters this knowledge. Along with the exotic Japanese woodcut prints and their vibrant colors, dark contours and unusual compositions, this modern artist joins all of these stimuli to create his own unique aesthetic.
In most of Van Gogh’s paintings of cypress trees, art historians believe that the artist had a deeper and spiritual intention behind it, but in Green Wheat Field With Cypress, it seems the artist had a bigger concern on its aesthetic and decorative value. The painter had a great fascination with the grand cypress trees and concluded many paintings portraying them. Cypresses and Wheatfield With Cypresses are examples of other works done during the same period. Van Gogh writes to his sister about this painting, comparing the color of the sky with the blue forget-me-not flowers and the warm colors in his pallet to bread crusts.
In fact, the composition used in this painting isn’t uncommon amongst artists like Pissarro, or Renoir. Van Gogh depicts vegetation, in shades of green and specks of blue and black, featured in the forefront – as if the viewer was behind the bushes. The wheat field takes a bit more than half the canvas and is mostly yellow-green. A pink house with a yellow roof and blues details peaks from behind the shrubbery and vegetation in light green and yellow highlights. The cypress tree stands tall in dark shades of green and dark brown, exceeding the limits of the canvas – as Van Gogh does in most portrayals of cypress trees.
