The Red Vineyard was the only painting that Vincent Van Gogh ever managed to sell. This was a groundbreaking work that was produced in 1888, only 2 years before Van Gogh died. This painting is currently being exhibited at Moscow’s Pushkin Museum. This painting depicts a group of harvesters working in fields during the sunset. The painting has striking use of colors, right from the luminous white at the center to the red fields in the foreground. This painting is a great display of Gogh’s aesthetic acumen.

About the Author

Vincent Willem Van Gogh was a post-Impressionist Dutch painter who was known for the use of bold colors and drawing styles which were rough, yet beautiful. Van Gogh started drawing from childhood and produced more than 2100 art-works during his lifetime. His work primarily included self-portraits, still life, landscapes, wheat fields and sunflowers. The bulk of his quality artwork came towards the late years of his life, after he had moved to France.
