Wheatfield behind St. Paul’s Hospital with a Reaper

"The latest one begun is the wheatfield where there’s a little reaper and a big sun. The canvas is all yellow with the exception of the wall and the bottom of purplish hills." To Theo. Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, Tuesday, 2 July 1889

Description:

Vincent will later paint the related image after recovering from a bout with his illness and attacks which will begin in the week after this letter is written.  While he is recovering in September, he will again take up this view from out of his window in the asylum at St. Remy.  The other related image is a detailed shot of the painting.
