The painting was painted in 1885.
For all viewers, this canvas necessarily evokes an incredibly pleasant and full of pacification feeling. Van Gogh depicted the traditional picture when harvesting. The colors are a bit exaggerated. The painter enriches them and deliberately sates. In reality, they are slightly different. The convergence of the image and the object takes place against the background of the most delicate in color of the sky, which is depicted in depth.
The viewer sees shining fields that are eagerly awaiting for harvest. Golden yellow prevails in this picture. It conveys a special radiance and true joy.
Van Gogh said that working on this masterpiece was very easy. He wrote on top of a hill to see everything that happens from a particular point. Fields, vineyards appear before us from a bird’s eye view. This picture is truly endless.
The painter wrote all his creations unusually passionately and fiercely. We feel the passionate temperament of the artist, his desire to feel the incredible harmony in everything and pass it on to the audience. But it was also clearly felt that the painter was experiencing an unaccountable fear of forces that are hostile towards him and humanity as a whole. This explains such an excess of yellow in different shades, which are just supersaturated with his canvases.
The landscape is truly filled with the light of the sun, which gives it an incredible charm and special warmth. Van Gogh possessed an amazing ability to fill even inanimate objects with a special life.
We feel a special vision of the world. It cannot but surprise, and therefore no one will ever be able to repeat the masterpieces of Van Gogh. He could not only capture his original, unlike any other, view of the world, but in a miraculous way, impose it on all those who looked at his creations.
