Main article: Vincent van Gogh

The Wheat Field is a series of oil paintings executed in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence by Vincent van Gogh. All of them depict the view Van Gogh had from the window of his bedroom on the top floor of the asylum: a field enclosed by stone walls just beneath his window and excluded from normal life by the rear wall of the asylum grounds; beyond this enclosure farm land, accompanied by olive groves and vineyards, ran up to the hills at the foot of the mountain range called Les Alpilles.

From June 1889 to May 1890 Van Gogh recorded this view in changing settings: after a storm, with a reaper in the field, with fresh corn raising in automn and with flowers in the spring. This is one of Van Gogh's major series from Saint-Rémy, comprising absolute masterpieces such as the Wheat Field at Sunrise in the Kröller-Müller Museum. Van Gogh included an earlier composition, the Wheat Field in automn, rising corn, in his Display at Les XX 1890.
