I Spy: Looking Closely at Wheat Field with Cypresses

Wheat Field with Cypresses
Vincent van Gogh 

Let's look closely at Wheat Field with Cypresses by Vincent Van Gogh!

Four questions to consider:

  1. What season do you think is depicted in this painting? Why? 
  2. What is the focus of the painting? What stands out to you? 
  3. Does this painting look like it was painted quickly or slowly? 
  4. How do the colors and brushstrokes make you feel?
