In 1888, the Dutch artist Van Gogh wrote to his next masterpiece painting “The Sower”. This work oil and has dimensions of 32×40 cm. Nina is stored in Amsterdam Museum of Vincent Van Gogh.
The artist was obsessed with peasant themes in his works.
On his account there are a few different paintings with images of the sower. When writing the first Van Gogh paintings inspired canvas by Jean-Francois Millet. The artist depicted the ulterior motive of the sower. His image is endowed with universal meaning and magnitude. After the sower represents a symbol of eternity. He seems to be a messenger of the Sun to the Earth. His figure seemed to have descended on the field on a sunny stairs.
In the picture just above the horizon, and over the golden wheat shows a solar disk, creating a bright halo above the head of a man. Between the sun and the sower have something in common. A man scatters seed on the field, as well as the sun spreads its rays in the sky.
Only sunlight spreads upwards and the sower’s hand pointing down. In this case the seeds fall into the soil, and then grow, new plants. Thus, the sower is a symbol of infinity. It showed life a continuous process of the rebirth of nature.
Painter hit the fast creation of web. Van Gogh did not do a preliminary sketch. He wanted rather to paint a picture as if his thoughts ahead of the action. Master immediately began to paint in oils. With each new brushstroke born accurate straight and wavy lines.
In the foreground, there was a tree that gave the plane composition. A huge sun occupies a large portion of the sky, which is painted in bright yellow color. The artist gave the field an unusual violet-blue shades. At a time when the sky should be blue and yellow box, if it all changed places. Van Gogh painting to display in their vision of reality.
