Farmhouse in a Wheatfield - Description

This painting by Vincent van Gogh, Farmhouse in a Wheatfield, is a study in contrasting colors, blue and orange, green and white. Van Gogh was much influenced by the Japanese artists of his time and their use of contrasting colors to define space. In a letter to Emile Bernard, van Gogh describes this painting this way, " Again, in this very naive landscape, which is meant to show us a hut, whitewashed overall (the roof, too), situated in an orange field, of course, because the sky in the south and the blue Mediterranean produce an orange that is all the more intense the higher in tint the range of blues -- The black note of the door, of the window panes, of the little cross on the rooftop, creates a simultaneous contrast of white and black just as pleasing to the eye as that of the blue with the orange" (source: The right of the frame is dominated by dark, tall trees marching in rows to the horizon. They are rooted in tall, green grass, rendered in deep, heavy paint. The sky above the small cottage is blue, but does contain a small, swirling white cloud. This cloud would reappear many times in van Gogh's work. However, in this painting, Farmhouse in a Wheatfield, the sky does not have the action and menace seen in later works. This is a peaceful, gentle work, done in a time of peace for the artist.
