Wheat Field with Crows stands out as one of Vincent van Gogh’s most powerful, and most fiercely debated, paintings. It’s not a difficult leap to symbolically equate the separate paths in Wheat Field with Crows with the paths, past and future, of Van Gogh’s own life. As an artist Van Gogh was fond of scenes involving stormy skies, he held a great deal of respect for the forces of nature and includes turbulent skies in a number of his works. Perhaps the most powerful image within Wheat Field with Crows is that of the crows themselves. Much of the speculation hinges on whether the crows are flying toward the painter or away from him. Vincent van Gogh had a passion and a keen eye for all things in nature.
