    "Wheatfield With Crows" was the final painting created by Vincent van Gogh in July of 1890, preceding his suicide in the same month. There have been numerous interpretations, but overall, many art critics believe it was a suicide note. The three separate paths with the crows flying in various directions is what I find most intriguing. My interpretation suggests a sense of hopelessness with the direction he should trek in life. Because the crows seem to be flying in all directions, he may have felt that all of his paths in life were now limited and predictable (ending in failure and grief). Because of his mental illness and life-long battle with depression, he may have viewed death as the only unfathomed yet alleviating path that was left to wander. This painting has inspired several personal poems and has left a permanent and healing mark on my spirit and overall hope in life. Van Gogh's life may have ended tragically, but his story has inspired and touched millions in the art world and in the human pursuit of reason and hope.

    Vincent Van Gogh. Wheat Field with Crows (July, 1890). Commonly believed to be Van Gogh's last painting before his suicide, scholars have concluded it was not. It was one of the last - he was prolific his last month - but not the last. #vanGogh #art

Van Gogh 1889."Cypresses" was painted in late June 1889, shortly after Van Gogh began his yearlong voluntary stay as a patient in the asylum in Saint-Rémy. The subject, which he found "as beautiful of line and proportion as an Egyptian obelisk," both captivated and challenged the artist: "It is a splash of black in a sunny landscape, but it is one of the most interesting black notes, and the most difficult to hit off exactly that I can imagine."
