“Landscapes, yellow—old gold—done quickly, quickly, quickly, and in a hurry just like the harvester who is silent under the blazing sun, intent only on the reaping,” is how Van Gogh described this stunning painting, one of many quick studies of the fields in Provence. These idyllic views were his muse, consuming him to continuously capture them.
Impressionism uses colours, juxtaposing complementary to create luminosity as if the picture itself was moving and changing with every look.
