A Wheatfield with Cypresses | Painted by Vincent van Gogh

Again, we have another painting whose author is Vincent van Gogh on our list. This painting depicts a wheat field surrounded by beautiful cypress trees and above the field a couple of surreal clouds only Vincent van Gogh could paint that way.

The interesting story about this painting is that it was painted during Vincent van Gogh’s stay at the Saint Paul De Mausole mental asylum, located in Arles, France. This beautiful, but expensive painting, was sold in 1993 by a man named Emil Georg Bührle’s son to another man called Walter H. Anneberg, for “only” $84.1 million.

  1. You are far away of having traced down the most expansive painting in the world! To my knowledge, this happens to be a work of Paul Gauguin painted in 1892 and entitled “Nafea faa ipoipo” (which in tahitian means “When will you marry”). It was once owned by swiss collector Rudolf Staehelin, who bought it in 1917, and sold in 2015 by his grandson to the emir of Quatar for an alleged price of $300 million.
