Wheatfield under thunderclouds (1890)

This is one of Van Gogh's last paintings. After a visit to his brother Theo and his wife in Paris, Vincent wrote ca.10 July 1890: "...because I know very well what I wanted I have painted three big canvasses since. Enormous vast wheatfields under savage skies and I have consciously tried to express sadness, extreme loneliness. ...I know almost for sure that I have put to words what I cannot express in words: how healthy and heartening I experience the countryside." (Also see 'Wheatfield with crows'.) In his last weeks of his life Van Gogh was rather depressed. He worried about Theo's future financial situation and his own, he was afraid for a new attack of his disease and he felt he had failed as a painter - despite some recognition. Vincent shot himself in his chest on 27 July 1890 and died two days later with Theo by his side. See Van Gogh Museum website for more information, including the correspondence between Vincent and Theo: www.vangoghmuseum.nl

" ...omdat ik heel goed wist wat ik wilde heb ik sindsdien nog drie grote doeken geschilderd. Het zijn enorme uitgestrekte korenvelden onder woeste luchten en ik heb welbewust geprobeerd er triestheid, extreme eenzaamheid in uit te drukken. ...ik weet bijna zeker dat ik in die doeken datgene heb verwoord wat ik niet in woorden uit kan drukken, nl. hoe gezond en hartversterkend ik het platteland vind’. (Zie ook 'Korenveld met kraaien'.) In de laatste weken van zijn leven was Van Gogh nogal neerslachtig. Hij maakte zich zorgen over de toekomstige financiële situatie van Theo en van hemzelf, was bang voor een nieuwe aanval van zijn ziekte en voelde zich - ondanks enige erkenning - als schilder mislukt. Op 27 juli schoot hij zich in de borst. Hij stierf twee dagen later aan zijn verwondingen, met Theo aan zijn zijde.
