A Wheatfield with Cypresses

A Wheatfield with Cypresses

  •  SOLD FOR $57 MILLION (equivalent to $ 93.1 million in 2015) in May, 1993. Later gifted to the Metropolitan Museum of Art
  • Why we like it: the colors, texture, and meaning all combine to make this one a must-have.
  • An asset to any room without being overwhelming, and as one of Van Gogh’s more famous paintings (and with the interesting story to go along with it) it’s a talking point and visually pleasing work of art.

More About Cypresses

Also known as ‘Wheat Field with Cypresses’, Van Gogh described his latest work to his brother as: “a canvas of cypresses with a few ears of wheat, poppies, a blue sky, which is like a multicolored Scotch plaid; the former painted with a thick impasto… and the wheat field in the sun, which represents the extreme heat, very thick too”.

Van Gogh’s Cypresses paintings have a very calming effect in them in that they make use of an analogous color scheme of yellow, green and blue in contrast to the usual complementary colors that the artist is better known for.

Wheat Field with Cypresses is currently on display at the Metropolitan Museum in New York City. It was donated by Walter H. Annenberg who bought it from Emil Buhrle in 1993 for $57 million making it among the most expensive paintings ever sold in history.

The original reed-pen design can be found at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam while his two other oil on canvas variants are part of a private collection and of The National Gallery’s collection in London.
