Farmhouse in a wheat field

Location in the artwork: Arles, France

When van Gogh arrived in Arles in the south of France from Paris, he was immediately inspired by the vast landscape.
He painted this simple farmhouse in a cornfield there and then, partly in thick brushstrokes and partly using little stipples. Van Gogh made a sketch of this landscape in a letter to his brother Theo.
