Van Gogh: Green Wheat Fields, Auvers, 1,000-Piece Puzzle
This jigsaw puzzle features a reproduction of Vincent van Gogh's Green Wheat Fields, Auvers (1890) from the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Art. Two-thirds of the composition consist of the field in a rich range of greens and blues, punctuated by outbursts of yellow flowers. Van Gogh's energetic strokes describe the movement of grassy stalks in the breeze, their patterned undulations creating a woven form anchored at the right by a juncture of field, road, and sky. Above the fields, the clouds whip around in spinning circles that Van Gogh created by squiggling his brush across the surface in broad, calligraphic strokes. He applied the paint is applied in thick impasto to achieve the textured surface common to his best-loved paintings. Through his dynamic touch and vivid, rich color, he expresses the intense freshness of this slice of countryside. Van Gogh wrote of his return to northern France as a kind of homecoming, a peaceful restoration in which the vibrant, hot colors of the south were replaced by cool, gentle hues of green and blue.
