Artist: Vincent Van Gogh
Museum: Van Gogh Museum (Netherlands)
A July 1890 painting by Van Gogh. A usual interpretation of this painting is that it shows Van Gogh's troubled state of mind with a dark, forbidding sky, the indecision of three paths going in different directions and the black crows overhead being signs of foreboding or even death. He wrote that he had made three paintings in Auvers of large fields of wheat under troubled skies. The painting is held in the collection of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
