A Wheatfield with Cypresses by Vincent Van Gogh
The Deal: Sold in May 1993 by the child of Emil Georg Buhrle to Walter H. Annenberg at a Private Sale. For: $57 million. Balanced Price: $94.1 million. One of the renowned works by the artist. It is a scene from the back windows of his room of the clinic at Arles.
This scene is one of the greatest compositions among Van Gogh's works. It is developed in extraordinary groups that navigate the whole space. The tall dull cypress trees at one side offer an amazing differentiation to the overall horizontals, which they look like in form.
The resistances of warm and cool, the proportioning of parts, the overall stature of sky and earth on the different sides, the even interims which we can gauge on the outline of the removed mountain, twice broken by trees - all these are consummately neat and very much adjusted.
