Wheatfield at Auvers with White House is a simple painting of a field of wheat with a country house in the background painted by Vincent Van Gogh. The colour and composition reveals a resurgence of spirit – returning are the lush greens of nature.
This was painted in 1890 after Van Gogh’s move from the asylum of Saint-Remy in Southern France where he felt stifled to Auvers-sur-Oise near Paris. The projection of sickly yellow here becomes the yellow of the ears of wheat; it is a joyous return to the wonder of nature.
Vincent Van Gogh’s Wheatfield at Auvers with White House is in the Phillips Collection, Washington D.C.
