Noemie Rueda asks whether the painting 'Wheatfield with Crows' was Vincent van Gogh’s final work. Discover the answer.
No, Wheatfield with Crows was not Van Gogh’s final work. Vincent van Gogh died on 29 July 1890, and from his letters, we know that this painting was completed earlier in the month.
According to Andries Bonger, the brother of Jo (Theo’s wife), Vincent painted a ‘sous bois’ shortly before his suicide attempt. It’s quite likely that this is the painting called Tree Roots.
