Painted during his self-imposed stay at the sanatorium in Arles, Provence, Van Gogh's Wheatfield with Cypress I is a throbbing and wide-eyed expression of both freedom and restraint.
Following a visit by his friend Paul Gaugin to his Yellow House in Arles, Van Gogh fell into a deep depression and sliced off his own ear as penance for an imagined crime. Although the frequency and intensity of the artist's frequent mental breakdowns was occasionally assuaged by cathartic process of self-treatment found in the process of painting, Van Gogh was clearly in the grip of an unstoppable decline. Yet, despite his manic condition his deep love of the wheat fields, cypresses and olive trees that were ubiquitous in the Southern French countryside, produced a great number of impassioned and elegant pieces. No mere reproduction of a natural scene, the painting pulsates with energy, life and, taking into account the scorching hot summers, shimmers with heat. Both spinning with movement and rigidly static,
Wheatfield with Cypress I is comparable to his Fishing Boats at Sea in the surging, unpredictable force of the natural world. Restless, broad, and full of endlessly ambitious lines of color, this masterful landscape is built up upon the canvas like the swirling sky of Van Gogh's The Starry Night. His Cypress scenes can certainly be seen as daylight partners to The Starry Night, avoiding any adherence to photographic reproduction, and stressing color patterns derived from the rhythms of nature. The fantastical and posthumously allegorical animal forms of the vivid and turbulent sky and soil portray the intensity of feeling during this most prodigious period of the artist's life. Wonderfully observed and teasingly sparse, Wheatfield with Cypress I is testament to Van Gogh's incomparable skill.
