Wheat Field Behind Saint‑Paul Hospital with a Reaper - Vincent Van Gogh

Vincent Van Gogh was interned several times in Saint-Rémy-de Provence in 1888-1889. He removed the bars from his window and painted what he saw. In a beautiful shortcut, he wrote in a letter: "I saw in this reaper - a vague figure who struggles like a devil in the heat to get through his work - I saw in it the image of death, in the sense that humanity would be the wheat that is reaped. But there is nothing sad about this death, it takes place in full light with a sun that floods everything with a light of fine gold".

The artwork in a nutshell

Vincent Van Gogh was interned several times in Saint-Rémy-de Provence in 1888-1889. He removed the bars from his window and painted what he saw. In a beautiful shortcut, he wrote in a letter: "I saw in this reaper - a vague figure who struggles like a devil in the heat to get through his work - I saw in it the image of death, in the sense that humanity would be the wheat that is reaped. But there is nothing sad about this death, it takes place in full light with a sun that floods everything with a light of fine gold".

The artist

Né le 30 Mars 1853, à Groot-Zundert en Hollande, Vincent Van Gogh se destine d'abord à une vie religieuse. A 27 ans, après une intense phase de dépression, il décide de se consacrer uniquement à la peinture. Ses fréquentations et lieux de vie l'influenceront dans ses mouvances artistiques : post-impressionnisme, expressionnisme et fauvisme. Il part pour Paris rejoindre son frère, où il rencontrera Toulouse-Lautrec, Pissarro et Gauguin. En 1886, il déménage pour Arles et s'installe dans un atelier avec son ami Gauguin. Une violente dispute avec ce dernier le conduit à se trancher l'oreille. Conscient de ses crises de folie, il consent à l'internement en 1889 dans un asile religieux à Saint-Rémi de Provence. Deux mois après sa sortie, il se suicide d'une balle de revolver en 1890 à Auvers-Sur-Oise.
