Part of Simply Cross Stitch's collection of kits depicting Vincent Van Gogh's paintings.
Wheat Field with Cypresses was painted the month whilst Van Gogh was voluntarily admitted to the asylum at Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in 1889. It was painted as part of a series of three paintings of his view from the asylum.
The painting depicts golden fields of ripe wheat, a dark fastigiate Provençal cypress towering like a green obelisk to the right and lighter green olive trees in the middle distance, with hills and mountains visible behind, and white clouds swirling in an azure sky above.
Van Gogh regarded this work as one of his best summer paintings. In a letter to his brother, Theo, written on 2 July 1889, Vincent described the painting: "I have a canvas of cypresses with some ears of wheat, some poppies, a blue sky like a piece of Scotch plaid; the former painted with a thick impasto like the Monticelli's, and the wheat field in the sun, which represents the extreme heat, very thick too."
This counted cross stitch kit admirably captures the image painted by Van Gogh in a composition of size 40x32cm
