Van Gogh painted a series of works featuring cypress trees during his voluntary stay at an asylum at Saint-Rémy, France. After some debilitating mental health episodes in the summer of 1889, he turned to this bucolic subject when he was recovered enough to paint again . He wrote to his brother Theo, “I have a canvas of cypresses with some ears of wheat, …a blue sky like a piece of Scotch plaid; the former painted with a thick impasto…” With his swirling brushwork, he captures the movement of the clouds across the sky over the windswept field.
