Sower With the Setting Sun, Vincent Van Gogh, 1888

The image of a farmer with the arm extended and throwing seeds on the furrows of the field was one of Van Gogh's favorite representations of farmers. In 1888, while the artist was staying at Arles, he painted various scenes of the Sower, most of them inspired by Jean-Francois Millet, who years earlier painted many scenes of farmers and sowers. But soon Van Gogh would show a personal interpretation of these traditional scenes, introducing the impressionist style to the countryside, with short strokes and the application of vibrant colors. In the painting above, the sower is the main object in the painting. The big, dark tree located next to the sower divides the painting diagonally. In the back a big round sun finishes the trilogy of big figures.
