About LOQI Van Gogh Tote Bag – Wheat Field with Cypresses (1889)
This water-resistant LOQI Van Gogh Tote Bag features the Dutch Post-impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh’s work Wheat Field with Cypresses (1889) made in September of 1889, currently found at the National Gallery of London. An earlier version made during late June of 1889 representing the same wheat field with cypress landscape found at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. Wheat Field with Cypresses demonstrates his interest in capturing the beauty of the towering cypress trees found around the Saint-Rémy Asylum where he was interned after a self-mutilation episode, years prior to his death. Wheat Field with Cypresses also captures Van Gogh’s knowledge of the traditional Dutch artistic tradition of landscape painting, as well as the divisionist brushwork found in other post-impressionist artists, such as Georges Seurat and others. While evidencing the artistic influences the artist received, Wheat Field with Cypresses manifests the individual characteristic style of Van Gogh through the vibrancy in his color palette, and rapid-loose brushwork expressed in dashes of paint. The earlier version of the Wheat Field with Cypresses work found at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York is of the same scale as that one produced in September of 1889. However, Van Gogh later made another smaller version of the painting intended as a gift for his mother and sister. Details on LOQI Van Gogh Tote Bag Wheat Field with Cypresses (1889):
