Wheatfield with Crows

Wheatfield with Crows is an oil painting by Vincent van Gogh. It was finished about the 10th July 1890 (van Gough died on the 29th July 1890).[1] In 1890, Van Gogh wrote that he had made three paintings in Auvers-sur-Oise of large fields of wheat under troubled skies. Wheat Field with Crows wasn one of them. It is almost certainly not the last painting of his life.[2] This painting in particular is often thought to reflect his state of mind towards the end of his life.[3]
