Wheat Field With Cypresses

Vincent van Gogh | Wheat Field with Cypresses | The Met

Cypress trees and wheat field — picturesque, In A Row - Stock ...

The first image is Van Gogh’s, “Wheat Field, with Cypresses.” It’s one of the most famous and expensive paintings (over $100 million adjusted for inflation) of all time.

The second is a stock photo I found when googling “wheat fields with cypress trees.” It sells for $19.99.

Both are beautiful. Both have value. Both engage our senses.

But it’s Van Gogh’s that truly captures our imagination. Weaves a spell. Makes us feel something and want to know more.

That’s the power of art.

Go make it.
