Retro 1951 Van Gogh Wheat Field with Cypresses Pen
Vincent van Gogh (Dutch, 1853–1890) became captivated by cypresses during his convalescence at the asylum in Saint-Rémy. Wheat Field with Cypresses (1889), a celebrated artwork in the Museum's collection of European paintings and decorating this elegant rollerball pen, is among his exuberant compositions featuring the towering trees. The ordinarily self-critical artist regarded this painting as one of his "best" summer landscapes.
