Field with Poppies - Description

Between the years of 1886 and 1890, Vincent van Gogh created seven different paintings of poppy flowers. He painted poppies in vases, in fields and in gardens. Van Gogh was interested in highlighting contrast in his paintings, so poppies were a natural choice with their black centers and bright red petals. In this painting, Field with Poppies, van Gogh takes the idea one step further, highlighting the difference between the red of the poppies and the bright green of the alfalfa fields in the distance. Vincent van Gogh was also interested in the interplay between light and dark in the sky (the blue of the sky with the white of the clouds and the yellow of the sun), and this painting contains a particularly beautiful windswept sky. The tall, round trees in the background draw the viewer's eye up to the sky. The brushstrokes in this painting are quick and heavy, in typical van Gogh style, and give the piece a feeling of movement and light. Vincent van Gogh created this painting, Field with Poppies as part of a series of landscapes he painted during his final days, living in Auvers, just north of Paris. Poppy fields are still prevalent both there, and near the asylum where van Gogh was treated for mental illness.
