The Sower 1888 by van Gogh

In 1888 Van Gogh moves to Arles. He is stimulated by the blazing sun and the brilliance of the Provence colours.

The metaphor of the wheat is visually presented in van Gogh’s painting The Sower (1888) in which three-quarters of the canvas shows a newly plowed filed in amazing colors.

The Sower shows an iridescent landscape dominated by an explosive sun and a soil swelling with energy. Colors (especially purple and yellow) are radiant and vital. The searing sun melts everything in sight: man, house, soil, bird and horizon are splashed with color and light.
