A painting that remains in everyone's memory: invites you to dream, lets your hand dip into a wheat field, carried by the wind .. painted by Vincent Van Gogh in 1889, Le Champ de blé avec Cypres. The painted landscape, in a constant state of an impending thunderstorm, brings a touch of movement to the work.
