Wheat Fields

Wheat Fields is a series of paintings by the Dutch Post-Impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh. This 1889 work, entitled Enclosed Field with Ploughman, is one of many oil-on-canvas paintings he created that included wheat cultivation. He wrote to his brother Theo of his approach to painting, "One must undertake with confidence, with a certain assurance that one is doing a reasonable thing, like the farmer who drives his plow... (one who) drags the harrow behind himself. If one hasn't a horse, one is one's own horse." This painting is in the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
