Vincent van Gogh painted 3 versions of Wheat Field with Cypresses. One resides in The Met in NY, one in the National Gallery in London. And there is a third, smaller one, in private collection.

Today 132 years ago, on 28 September 1889,

Vincent van Gogh wrote to Theo van Gogh from Saint-Rémy-de-Provence:

"Soon I’m sending you a few smaller canvases with the 4 or 5 studies I wanted to give to Mother and our sister. These studies are drying at the moment. It’s no. 10 and no. 12 canvases, reductions of the Wheatfield and cypresses, Olive trees, Reaper and Bedroom and a little portrait of me."

The Wheat Field with Cypresses Vincent mentions here is a smaller version (51,5 x 65 cm) than the famous versions in The Met in NY and the National Gallery in London. It is in private collection and unfortunately there is no good photo of it. Hopefully it will be exhibited one day. Instead:
